Gold Wing GL 1500 – HT1500


Trike – Gold Wing GL 1500 – Roadsmith HT1500


Standard Features:

  • Independent Rear Suspension – The smooth ride of the HT1500 is primarily due to our innovative suspension system that offers a ride like no other trike.
  • True Track Stabilizer Bar – The stabilizer bar, also known as a sway bar is a flexible link between the two trailing arms. The bar uses the torsion effect to always try to keep the trike righted, or sitting square to the ground.
  • Longer Wheelbase – We increase the wheelbase on all of our conversions. This puts the rear wheels back behind the passengers’ seat area rather than sitting right on top of the wheels. Any vehicle that has a longer wheelbase will have a smoother ride.
  • Shaft Driven Differential – Our differential is constructed from standard automotive ring and pinion gear sets. There application includes many years and models of Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth vehicles.

More Features:

Disc Brakes
Large disc brakes more than handle the stopping of this trike. Remember trikes stop faster and easier than bikes. With more tire contact area and much better stability, braking a trike is not the white knuckled balancing act that a bike can be. The wheel bearings, calipers and rotors are all from a high production automobile application. Like all of our constructed drive train, we use everyday parts off the shelf for your convenience.

Heavy Duty Driveshaft
We manufacture a completely new driveshaft built from full size automotive U-joints and a 2″ tube. We use the same components used in cars and light trucks. If that design can propel that much weight, it should last forever in this application.

Heavy Duty CV Joints
The axles are custom made for our conversion kits, but the constant velocity (CV) joints are standard automotive applications such as VW and Porsche. We use automotive type parts for all of our drive train because it’s designed for a much heavier load. This means these parts will probably last forever in this light duty application. Again using off the shelf parts for your convenience

Alloy Wheels
The Alloy wheels that come
with our conversion kits are a clear-coated aluminum rim that have a similar look and finish to the bikes front rim. They are a 16″ x 7”, 5 bolt on ; positive 35mm offset size that fits many automotive applications. We also offer a Chrome plated option. The tires are P215/55R-16.

Storage Compartment
The large storage compartment comes completely carpeted to both protect and store your riding gear. The trunk (4.5 cubic feet) has about 50% more capacity than the stock saddlebags. This gives the benefit of having a larger space for you to fit larger objects into. If you choose not to get the auxiliary fuel tank, an extra 6” high x12” wide x 12” deep storage space can be added. The large trunk door opening also allows for easier packing or loading. The release for the saddlebags under the Tour Pack is now used to release the latch for the trunk. This convenient trunk will fit all your gear securely away from the elements.

Factory styled body
The slick body design incorporates the look and feel of the original motorcycle. We feel the trike conversion body should melt seamlessly into the original body parts. The body is constructed of heavy-duty fiberglass. It is then painted with urethane paint, flat sanded, and buffed to a mirror finish to ensure a perfect paint match both in color and finish. The mounting system for the body ensures a rock solid attachment and no exposed mounting hardware. Notice the added foot room for the passenger, another feature of a longer wheelbase.

Trailer Hitch
With any touring machine, a trailer hitch is a familiar sight. When riding a trike, a trailer is not a danger like it is on a bike. The trike will never feel like there’s a trailer behind it. We include a 1 1/4” receiver style trailer hitch neatly tucked under the body. It is incorporated into the rear body support and is welded directly into the strongest part of our frame. This is not an option or add-on. It’s built right in. It’s another one of the innovative ideas built into the design of our trike kit.
