Item specifics




Bike to Trike Conversion Kit

Intended Use:

Modification/ Enhancement




Including Shocks Callipers and Anti-Roll Bar



(as shown in the photograph)

This NEW BMW (E39) based in-board system allows you to retain the rear mud guard and lights, and will also allow you to have a luggage rack fitted.  It gives you more options when re-routing exhausts and deciding your own carrying / rear loading format.  It will give you a neat and tidy finish, leaving you to just personalise your trike build.

 Wide track 1530mm across drive flange faces, narrow track 1300mm.   If you’re looking to trike your bike, then this Kit is exactly what you need to build a fantastic looking and handling trike.  With our kit, YOU CAN TRIKE YOUR BIKE FOR LESS THAN YOU THINK!


Casarva are well known for engineering innovation and quality.  We started designing trike units for Luego Developments Ltd in 2005, as advertised in Back Street Heroes and featured in 100% Biker.  Casarva have developed this new kit from our extensive experience in the industry that we now are the Market leader in. 

We utilise a BMW 5 Series (E39) or Ford Sierra back end as a donor. Using an Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) set up improves the ride comfort and overall handling of your trike and the custom anti-roll bar gets the power down when you need it most!  We have designed this kit with aesthetics and ease of build in mind, taking some of the hard work and head scratching out of the project for you. Having fitted many of these on many different bikes, we can also say that it's compatible with most bikes out there (call for specific details).

We have sold many kits, (and completed many turn-key builds for customers) so if you've been looking at trikes you have probably seen one but not realised it was ours.  Our customers have said to us that the kit is easy to use and fit, and in many cases the builder has had the bike on 3 wheels in a weekend! (Please note not finished and on the road) 
This kit will give your trike a great suspension feel due to being an IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) set up. 
Cararva are Gold Affiliates to the National Association for Bikers with a Disability (NABD) and we'll be happy to discuss any particular needs you may have to make your trike right for you.
