I have the tow pac insta trike on both my 1500 and 1800. I have had no problems with them. It does take more effort to check tire pressures but I solved that issue by using the valve stem indicators on the tire valves. I have the 1500 tow pac up for sale as is the 1500 wing (it is a project bike as it is not running and apart now).

Not sure what he is charging this year, but last year he was well under $2000 installed. Here is a rear view of mine and a side view.



Sweet ride and my bike will also be red like that since my mechanic happened to have a red factory fairing set up laying around. I will call him and see what he says. Does this kit come with a torsion axle suspension?

Yes I do have pics. Will try to post here. I am asking $2000 OBO for the tow pack. I have installed lights on it for brakes and turn signals. I also have the install manual for it.

Yes he uses the torsion axle. While I enjoy helping Norm when ever I can, that TowPac is a pretty good setup also, I've been told. Bamaeagle also is asking a good price. The only concern I would have with the TowPac is can you get the adaptors to fit your older bike. Maybe he can explain more about how it would hook up to your bike since I don't know anything about it or what he's got.

Mine isn't a quick detach like the others. Mine is bolted to the frame, but can be detached to ride 2 wheels, but not quickly or very easy. I look at it like this. I didn't have it put on so I could ride 2 wheels, but if I decide to sell the bike, it is removable like it was never there.

Do I miss 2 wheel riding? You bet I do, but I've found ways to enjoy this setup probably more now that I don't have to worry about dumping myself or my wife. I've got several medical problems that were making 2 wheel riding very difficult.

It would fit but you would have to have the install kit for the 1100. Mine was for the 1500. I think it would be mostly different ubolts and such to make it fit. Thanks trike lady for the link to the tow pac site.
