2013 Nomad 1700 Reversed Trike

It is not home yet, but I could not wait to post the video below. Two things are not accurate on the video. My Trike is a 2013 Nomad 1700, and the mufflers are Cobra Slip Ons. This is my solution to getting older but still wanting to ride.

Pretty cool, glad you've found a way to stay in the wind! I've always said I'll go the trike route if/when I have to...

not only will it allow you to ride longer, it will also protect you legs when/if you tangle with a 2500+ 4 wheeled vehicle because they weren't watching what the hell they were doing.....
Since I moved here, I sold my 2001std. 2 rear wheel trike.
I kept the roadglide fairing, and the turbo setup that I was mounting on it, am now building a reverse trike setup for another 2001 Nomad.

Its gonna have 26" front wheels, small trunk out front, 16" bagger apes,
Something similar to this, but a 01' Nomad....

If I ever feel the need to trike instead if getting a sports car, I will go with a tilting motorworks trike kit. Without the lean it is no longer riding IMO.

Thanks for the comments. I can't wait to get her home. Hopefully we are going to have some warm days to ride. For anyone who was unable to see the video due to an "antique" operating system you might try Norm's website at https://endeavortrikes.com/
