Insta Trike kit (tow pac) fits most motorcycles 8" tires weight 155 lb. length 38" width 19" ASKING 800.00 O.B.O

I have a chance to purchase this item locally. I have pasted the ad as it reads.

I have a GL1100 1980 model GW. The lady said her husband had a 1500 which I believe she said was a 1993 Aspencade. I was wondering if this kit might fit my bike. Does anyone know or will any of these kits fit anything with a few modifications?

I know this would look like training wheels on a bike but for the price who cares...lol

I do not know anything about the system of support wheels you are interested in, other than I have seen them installed a couple months ago when I went to a Bike shop in Myrtle Beach.

What I do know is any piece of equipment I have ever had with 8 inch wheels has always been a royal pain. Boat trailers, small equipment trailers, I have had a lot of stuff with 8 inch wheels. I suppose there is no danger as installed on a bike the main riding system and regular tires will do the work, the outriggers will simply support....

Small tires and wheels simply come with lots of headaches and maintenance. Bearings, seals, are always needing replaced, the tires get hot as can be and wear very quick. In fact a lot of small equipment trailers come with a warning not to use them over 45 mph. So just saying is all........small wheels......are a pain. I would simply suspect they would be the same in that application.......Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI
