2012 Gen2 Trike

Posted on: April 30, 2014

What we have here is a 2012 GL1800, which is orange metallic and black in color. We recently installed a 2014 Hannigan Gen 2 trike kit on it. The awesome thing about the kit is the independent rear suspension, with coil over gas filled shocks, sway bar, and a thunderbird 2.73 rear end. The rear end is a direct bolt-on to the factory Honda swing arm. This adds a huge amount of stability, which no other company even compares too. In fact Hannigan is the only company that offers it.  The ride and the handling of the trike is unmatchable, the idea of it riding like silk comes to mind. We also installed a large rear wing to finish off the conversion. It comes with Brembo brakes on the rear of the bike, and the Gen2 kit also renders LED brake lights in the kit.

Another thing we do is clear bra on the front fenders, running boards, and the front spoiler. Reason we do so is to protect the front of the bike against chipping and scratching, so you can rack up the miles and still look excellent.  We have had way too many customers come in with chunks and chips all over their beautiful bikes, and the issue you is that you can’t touch it up it never matches.

The trike was equipped with 18” rear wheels, black of course, and an 18” front black stock wheel.  On this trike we also did progressive front fork springs, with a 6 degree raked triple trees. The ones we chose were true raked trees, not just the angled holes most places sell.

Hannigan is the only trike kit. Anything else almost seems like a joke after riding one.
