There was a nice Burgman 650 with a Yelvington conversion at the STO Rally this last weekend.  I thought I'd share a few pictures.

Very interesting - what does this conversion cost (parts and labor)?

The kit is over $5,000 plus labor. There is also a real nice body kit if you want to go all out.
You can have a look here. http://yelvingtontrikes.com/silverwing600/

Wow! The photographer did a fantastic job and the Burg looks very professional. But $9000.00 for the bike, $ 5000.00 plus labor?
For $ 15,000 I could buy a G/W

I agree but some of us with hip or knee problems can't mount a Gold Wing.

We have the dark blue Siverwing with the same kit and it fits our needs quite nicely. We purchased a wing with less than 3500 miles and myself and one of my associates installed the kit. This is the only way to go for more mature riders with shoulder and knee problems. You sure don't need to worry about putting your feet down or holding up the scoot. I also have a goldwing trike and I alternate which color I am going to ride!

Looks like a really nice conversion kit. However, for my money, I'd want more storage space vs. the additional tupperware. ~ Bugjr ~

Seen a trike conversion similar to this one on a Harley, may have ben the same manufacturer, was impressed with the Billett Aluminum Differential.

Mine was trouble since the beginning..parts had to be re-machined they never sent my promised body kit, they have claimed to have gone out of business, I was one of the first kits made and had to wait over 6 months after payment... last August the sprocket bolts shirred off & I was stranded. hopefully have her back on the road in 2 weeks, had to buy 2 new sprockets, bolts, bearing from Honda, chain, and HAVE the sprockets machined at a whopping $150.00 that's after purchasing them from tractor supply of all places...

Who is the "they" that said the company is out of business ? Yelvington did buy out the original owner, but they did have to upgrade allot of the kit. The link is above and here it is again.

I think we have a Trinity Trikes and Yelvington Trikes conflict here.

I absolutely support Harleywld1 and her problems with Trinity, and from what I remember, Yelvington did not support her a great deal. alien beamed up
