Default Cross Country Trike ?

Has anyone triked a Cross Country ? And before you turn the torches on me I am well aware of the thread in progress on the trike build ! I am asking for someone with EXPERIENCE with, and riding a XC trike. Thanks in advance for your responses.

Thanks for all the replies. Gives me something to think about. I'm kind of leaning towards the Roadsmith, if I do this. But the Leyman is also nice. Decisions, decisions. Wish I could see one in person.

I went with the Chsmpion which is the same a Lehman. Chsmpion bought Lehman a couple of years ago. Motor trike has some nice features such as air ride and reverse mounted diectectly on the trike. But I really don't like the way their trunk opens down and you effectively have to reach over it. Not real user friendly. I like to body of the Champion the best. It really seems to fit well with the Victory design lines. It IRS and available as a do it yourself kit. Not all trikes are. I'll be doing my own air ride at some point and Victory reverse.

I love me CSC conversion, had it for about 3 years now, best and nicest lines on the market IMO.

CSC makes a really nice trike conversion but it wasn't an option for me as I wanted to install my own.

Salty, have you had any problems with your conversion ? I went to a trike builder and he had a lot of negative to say about every conversion except his, and CSC in particular. Got any pictures of side/rear view of your trike ?

If a builder has something neg to say about everyone else but his I'd run the other way. Go on Triketalk.com and check out some knowledgeable people.
SALTY and irv like this.
