Roadsmith Launches Trike Conversion Kits For 2014 Harley-Davidson Rushmore Touring Models

roadsmith1roadsmith2The one featured here is based on a two-tone Electra Gide Ultra Limited sporting a new 7-degree steering rake kit (previous Harley-Davidson FLH trikes used a 4-degree rake.)

The Roadsmith designed “Rushmore Trike” features their well-known independent rear suspension for a much improved ride. The conversion retain the ABS braking system featured on the new :Rushmore”, the linked braking system linking both front and back brakes for improved stopping power and safety, as well as Harley’s new liquid cooling system.

The Roadsmith Rushmore trike is equipped with a spacious trunk paired with the original Harley-Davidson Tour Pak for long-range storage capacity.

Roadsmith Trikes, born in 1972 under the name “Trike Shop”, is based in White Bear Lake, MN where it manufactures and distributes a wide range of trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles.  The company has a network of over a hundred dealers in the U.S. and Canada as well as their own factory retail store on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, Florida..

    First, let’s wait for Harley to fix all its 2014 Rushmore models…

    I’ve never ridden a trike and don’t plan on buying one. But I’ve always assumed the independent rear suspension must make handling better. Anyone want to chime in and share their experience?

    Is it just the photo stretched, or is that really long compared to stock? Even accounting for the 7° rake, it seems to be oddly long in that picture.
