The Tri Glide Ultra Classic is the first three-wheeled motorcycle produced by Harley-Davidson since the Harley-Davidson Servi-Car, which was manufactured from 1932 to 1973. The Tri Glide is based on the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic, a conventional two-wheeled touring motorcycle. Harley-Davidson entered into an agreement in 2008 with Lehman Trikes of Spearfish, South Dakota to provide parts and "conversion services", and final assembly of the Tri Glides was initially completed at Lehman's facility.
For consignment a 3 wheeled motorcycle which at first was popular with more mature riders, and women, now has come to have many realize the advantages in the three wheeled bike, and popularity has soared! With a 5-speed manual and optional electric reverse, it's an easy rider with the long front forks and ape hangers of yore. It is also very quiet!
With this trike, and its big overstuffed black leather seats you can go in for the long haul in comfort and do not have to fret about putting your foot down when coming to a stop. Beautiful red with black accenting covers the front cowl, (batwing shaped), that has a small windshield on top. It cradles the headlight and single running lights on either side. Chromed forks move downward to the front wheel to support the turn signals and a nicely shaped and colored front fender is between the forks. The white sidewall tire is wrapping an American racing front wheel with dual outboard disc brake. In back we have the two split wheels that are belt driven through a differential. These rear wheels are also polished American Racing and are just pristine. A large rear fender covers the wheels, protects the riders from splash from the rear tires, and has some rear lighting for extra visibility. On top of this large “fender” is a plastic molded factory storage box with a polished luggage rack on top. The fuel tank is teardrop shaped from metal and is two tone red and black.
Within the confines of the solid black steel tubular frame is a gleaming V-twin engine of 88ci displacement and is putting a max of 68hp. EFI and an electronic reverse is available to make the backup even easier. Electric start is effortless. A 5-speed manual transmission allows for nice acceleration, as well as a smooth fuel-efficient cruise. The V twin is air cooled and just gleams with pride within that frame.
Of course the overstuffed padded leather covered in black, buttoned seats which cascade downward towards the fuel tank and allow for perfect center of gravity for two. Within the front cowling is a large speedometer and tachometer. Other necessary gauges in smaller round form are flanking the instruments in the center, and a flush mounted AM/FM/Cassette radio is neatly mounted. Your hands are kept busy with the throttle and various other handlebar controls.
Tubular steel framing throughout is strong and rust free. Dual disc brakes are up front and a telescoping fork/hydraulic shock setup is in there to support it. On the back, independent coil overs and a belt drive push the bike forward effortlessly. Disc brakes are here too.
This is one beautiful and well cared for Trike from HD. Paint and body have no scratches, no accidents, and in near mint condition. 16K miles, and just showroom quality all around. Here's your chance to hit the open road in the open air and open her up for some thrills for you and your passenger. I say cross country, blue highways are in your future, and William Least Heat Moon couldn't have been that far off! (Think “Zen, and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”)
