Unique Trikes Kits For Harley-Davidson Softail Models Now Available In The USA

1trike2trikeWide World PowerSports signed an exclusive importer agreement with Q. TEC. Engineering Belgium (“Q. TEC.”) to distribute their unique and patented trike kits in the United States. Available for 2000 and up stock Harley-Davidson® Softail® models, these kits offer the option to create a front or rear wheel trike while maintaining the value of the original motorcycle, as no drilling or welding of the original frame or chassis is required. The kits include everything down to the last bolt and washer to complete the build except for the wheels and paint.

Five models are currently available and include the Q3F which converts the motorcycle into a reverse trike, with two wheels in the front. Rear wheel conversion models include the Q3R, Q3R Full that includes multiple options such as reverse gear, luggage rack, rear bumper, and backrest, and the Q3R Classic for those who enjoy the nostalgic look of the Harley-Davidson® Servi-Car. Also available is the Q3R Mamuth model that puts a modern twist on the Q3R classic.

“No matter which model is chosen, they all provide the ability to easily return the vehicle to its original state,” says Wide World Powersports owner Mark Klein. Suggested retail price for the Q3F kit is $14,310. Rear trike kits range from $14,100 to $17,100 and include all but the wheels, fluid, paint and labor costs to complete the conversion. Dealers for Q. Tec.’s trike kits are being sought throughout the United States. Accepted dealers will be supported with a full sales and service network, and factory trained technicians to answer any technical questions.

    If I installed the kit for the front AND the one for the rear on my Softail (the one I don’t have) could I turn the bike into a car? Just hypothetically speaking….

    58_pan did you cheat and look at their website first?

    Now they just need to make a rear wheel conversion for the slingshot

    Holy moly! M.F. Smith I did not but I should have LOL! So is that still a motorcycle?

    And I don’t mean per every individuals definition, I mean legally. If I start with a vehicle that’s a motorcycle and put two extra wheels on it…..

    I see a “Lucas Oil” bike on their site that appears to have a Sportster engine on a Softail frame that has been converted to 4 wheels. That’s custom on a custom on a custom!
    Seriously, although I am not a trike guy, these machines do appear to be well thought and look as good as this kind of machine can look.

    Looks interesting and different. I may contact him for more info about starting a dealership.
    There are individuals who may want a smaller trike.

    I’m not a lawyer but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express so here goes: Since your VIN # on the donor bike goes with the frame and is registered as a motorcycle this VIN # remains a motorcycle even if you add a front and rear kit, thereby modifying it to have four wheels. Legally, still a motorcycle. Probably. Realistically you built yourself a quad or atv that carries plates and can be ridden on the street. It’s not at all for me but I think it’s cool people are doing stuff like this.

    I’m not a lawyer either, but from reading articles on the Slingshot, I know some if not all States’ description of a motorcycle excludes a 4th wheel no matter what. Leaving any personal opinions out of it, you will obviously be ticketed if you try the front and rear conversion on the street with motorcycle plates.

    That said,I have never been able to figure out how those “training wheel” trike conversions that leave the rear wheel in place are legal to ride.

    “That said,I have never been able to figure out how those “training wheel” trike conversions that leave the rear wheel in place are legal to ride.”

    That’s a good question Woody. I wonder if it has something to do with the outer wheels not being power or steering wheels. Kinda like adding two extra rear wheels to a truck and making it a dually for extra load support.

    Maybe it’s a gray area that is best left alone. I would imagine the manufacturer has looked up the laws, if there are any, on them.

    If I were to switch to a trike; It would be cool to keep what I have and simply change out the front end. I’d prefer two front wheels for handling.

    @Boomer- “Maybe it’s a gray area that is best left alone.” Amen, that’s the only thing that has me nervous about designs and marketing of machines like the Slingshot that exist for the moment only because they have less than 4 wheels. I fear some current or future event to circumvent auto rules will wipe out all trike options in typical gummint overreach.
