Default Towing a converted CCT to Trike Rear wheels down?

May convert the CCT to a CSC. Tried one really liked it. Believe it or not, my issue is transporting it time to time to another location. I don't own a trailer, nor have the room for one. I've seen videos and actual trikes on the hwy being towed with only the front wheel off the ground, or in a small "dolly".

What harm can come from this, and if so, any work around to make it safe? towing a car behind a motorhome some people start the engine every few hundred miles for lubrication, would that help?

would guess maybe shorter tire life. Maybe shorten the belt life witch would not be a easy change on a trike.
Thinking for one your car might not have the towing package so your car trans will burn up and with the front tire off the ground say 2ft the rear end of the trike would be real close to the pavement. One good bump might destroy bags or fender
Look on youtube and below video will be somebody's name contact them and see what they say.
Might be cheaper to rent one. Yes I know its the other brand

Got a tech at Victory. Not easy! So all know, he said Vic tranny can't handle it. Will burn up quickly. Pump needs to run. Thanks for the post

So KevinX,

Is it possible to do it backwards? Put the rear tires on a car dolly, and drag the front tire?

Personally I wouldn't tow it by any means at all. Just asking for trouble.

Yes it quick disassemble for small space storage like against the wall of your garage. It's for sale. 675 but I'm a pretty long way away from you.

PM'd you. Dying to know who makes this. Can't find it anywhere on the web.

Need to know for when I bite the bullet and go trike, it's perfect for my needs... later.

If you were closer I'd buy yours and store it for now.
