I have a 2005 C50 Boulevard trike but boy is the steering heavy. Does anyone know good place to get a triple tree for her so at least I stand a bit of a chance getting round corners!!! From info I have from bike shops and trike convertors I will need to go Stateside. Used to have Goldwing (sorry for language) which had 4 degree angle change and it wasn't so good for me. That was some years ago and I am a bit older and need power steering. With that and the C50 going from 0 to 60 in OMG my first experience was the one I wanted.

Sorry mike from my experience which is only what we have discussed on here in the past, state side seems to be the only realistic option. Well that is unless you take what you have to an engineer and let him play with it, that could be just as dear tho

Thanks captain. Once I get them which aren't really too dear I will find myself a helpful mechanic and bribe them to help me fit them. Being new its nice to know someone somewhere has probably been down the same road so to speak. Trike was my 60th birthday pressie for myself so I want to get everything right so I can enjoy it.

It is all in one piece dont worry. I just need a triple tree or yoke with an extra 4 or 5 degree angle which pushes the front wheel forward and makes steering lighter.Guess if it wasnt there at all it would beeven lighter but would only go in a straight line lol. By the way captain where do I find the icon thingys please.

 They're at the top of where you type Mike, press the yellow smiley and a selection pops down   
Won't top and bottom yoke need changing if it's going to give a different angle.

Not sure how it works but it was done to my 'Wing somehow but guy who did that is no longer with us so cant ask him. I think trees are set at a different angle but I am not knowledgable to understand it properly.
