Hey John, something you might want to think about getting is the FOBO Bike2 TPMS system for you trike. I just contacted them to see if they were offering any discount for Sturgis/Sharkweek and they gave me 15% off. I ordered the metal T-stems to go with them and will wait to install until I put new tires on later this year or next spring. But for $104 shipped, I will love having the ability to get instant pressure readings and warnings on my phone/apple watch if there is an issue.

Glad you're loving the trike life!

Front Fender, If it were mine, I would go with more of a wrap type fender on the front. The stock one on the Freewheeler is too short (my opinion) and the stock RGS fender would be too boxy (not sure that is a word but that is how I think it would look). I think that a wrap fender would look much better especially with the lowers.

They make a 3 piece for trikes too. I've had it in the back of my head.

I think you're right. I want to put a wrapped on the wifes too. So wrapped it is. Not right away. But it will be part of the SharkWheeler conversion.

The Stock is pretty damn close to a Wrap as is....no? Not sure what else you would gain from a wrap other than the portion closest to the Motor extending down further?

I like the looks of the stocker myself

It's a bit short. It looks better on the wifes without the lowers.

Been perusing ebay for parts. Lol.
