specify motorcycle, conversions vary between shaft drives, chain drives. Follow up examples: BMW /6 with Ford Pinto rear end- good for the shaft drives on right side since the Ford rear end is slightly offset to right on pumpkin. Ford E van rear ends a favorite also, same offset and the straight tubes and pressed ball bearings can be shorted easily to fit into pumpkin and shaft cut and resplined. Old drill used by Highwaymen out of chicago in 1970s- get a ex police trike frame with blown engine and cut in front of seat post, flip rear end and the get a glide frame, clamp the seat post together for try fit, align chain to drive shaft sprocket and then spot weld seat posts and frame, final check fit and then full weld and gusset. Sporty frames don't flip the read end- chain is already on right side. Another rear end on sporty- chevy C20 with pumpkin cut for chain, crown wheel replaced with chain sprocket, splash axle bearings replaced with sealed bearing with 50,000 mile warranty.

What do you want? You can get a 50cc twist-n-go scooter up to a 500 cubic inch Boss Hoss.

One suggestion would be to get back on your meds and seek therapy. ;D You'll need to research the different techniques more to see what you would like as there are a few ways to go about it. Fab-on to a hard-tail with a bike engine, use an old VW Bug rear to a bike front, small-block engine in custom frame ....

No offence,friend but the fact that you are asking here tells me that you do not really posses the skills needed to do a conversion like this.Lucky for you there are a few companies out there who will do it for you. Just bring them your bike and a fistful of money,wait a while and ride your trike home.

I looked into having my BMW K1200LT converted to a trike... The LEAST expensive TRUE trike conversion would cost somewhere around $14,000 bucks, installed. Of course, if you just want to add a set of training wheels to your bike, it will cost a bit less...

You can get any number of kits to convert shaft drive and chain drive (and probably belt drive) bikes to trikes. It seems to me that a chain drive is simplest but not so elegant, I would look at a shaft drive BMW or Yamaha. Or even a Beetle to trike conversion.
