I'll check to see if I can locate a set of gears first, If not I'll be putting bigger tires on her.

Trike Lady, Thanks for the return, I have been in touch with Bill, But hoping to find one a little more cheaper, 1080.00 plus bearings is a little more than I want to spend at this time, [got to clean up some cards] Jammer, Thanks for the return, What size is your 3rd member, Thanks Charles Franz

Just read most of this thread for the first time. If your new trike has the newer '70s / 80s sized 4 lug Ford pattern (4 holes X 108 mm (4.25") circle using 1/2-20 studs) as used on almost all Fox bodied Fords (T-birds, Cougars, Mustangs) and Pintos, then yes .... there are a bunch of 15" wheels available as that includes 1979-1993 Mustang GTs (*not SVO) as well as those '83-'88 Thunderbirds and T-bird Turbo Coupes (that even came with 16" wheels in 1987 / 88).

My Lehman trike uses a Ford 6.75" rear housing cut down with 3.08:1 gearing, uses new shorter axles, Ford 1.75x9" drum brakes, 7/8" diam wheel cylinders, 15x7 ASA 5 spoke wheels (I even picked up a spare pair off ebay a few years ago) and Lehman shipped Dunlop GT Qualifier 245/60-15 tires with the kit. I had a '85 Thunderbird with "10 hole" Ford 15x7 wheels and it had same exact lug pattern and back spacing as the wheel Lehman shipped. When tires needed replacement, I went with 215/70-15 Lemans HR tires which are same OD, weight 4 pounds less per tire, are 1" narrower overall ..... and I installed longer Morosso studs and used some 1/2" spacers to bring the tire sidewall back out near fender for asthetics sake.


3,000 rpm in 5th is near 65 mph as I recall. I had a picture ..... I'll look closer.

The old Ford 4 lug pattern (4 holes X 114.3 mm (4.5") circle using 1/2-20 studs) as used on Falcons and 6 cyl Mustangs in the '60s is different, that is the same pattern used by Motor Trike I believe. I am not sure of other manufacturers.

Easy to measure, 4 lugs, measure across center to center of lugs. There are also aftermarket 4 lug wheels made in a dual lug pattern.
