Ken's Custom Trikes     2245 N.E. Jefferson Ave., Peoria, IL 61603     (309)682-2453
Every HT1800 Roadsmith Trike is built with the attention and
craftsmanship needed to be a true extension of the Honda™ motorcycle
itself. Take a closer look and you will see what we mean.

Have Fun, Worry-Free
Auxillary Fuel Tank
Our unique auxillary fuel tank was
the first of its kind 15 years ago.  
We figured since we had the
extra space above our
differential, why not utilize it?  
Now we can offer you an
additional 5 gallons of fuel on
board.  It's not that the
Roadsmith gets bad gas mileage,
typically 3-5 mpg less than the
motorcycle, but on those long
trips it's worth the peace of mind
just to know you have extra fuel.  
Some states can push the limits of
the stock fuel tank. To fill the
rear tank, remove the chrome
fuel cap on the left side of the
body and fill it just like the front
tank.  No need to wait for fuel to
transfer SLOWLY to the extra
tank.  To use the fuel in the
auxillary tank, drive until the low
fuel light comes on.  Then simply
flip the toggle switch while

driving and the fuel will transfer
from the rear tank up to the
bike's original tank.  When all the
fuel is pumped out of the rear
tank it shuts itself off.
Extended Trunk
This fully carpeted trunk insert
adds a 6" tall by 12" wide by 12"
deep extra storage area at the
front of your trunk.  This area
makes a great place to tuck away
your rain gear or chaps.  This
insert basically takes the space
where the auxillary fuel tank
could go.
Steering Kit
The Roadsmith 5 1/2 degree
steering kit is an option that most
people get, if not initially,
someday. The GL1800 needs a
rake increase to make for a
comfortable and stable trike. To
explain what a steering kit does is
a little complicated but basically
it feels like power steering for
your trike. It reduces the steering
effort by about half. The front-
end geometry for a motorcycle is
designed with a certain amount
of trail in the front end to allow
the bike to counter steer easy
and remain stable. As a trike we
are not counter steering, but
rather steering. This is the
opposite of what that front end
was designed to do. With our
steering kit we reduce the trail in
the front end to give you better
leverage at the handlebars to
steer your trike. It gives you
better mechanical advantage to
turn the front wheel off of
center. It’s like your handlebars
are twice as wide as they really
are. This can really positively
affect your fatigue level at the
end of a long day.
Progressive Fork Springs
These are the ticket to improving
your front-end suspension and are
recommended with the steering
Chrome Rear Rims
You can brighten up your wheels
with this 16" x 7" chrome rim
option.  They are a 5 x 4 1/2 bolt
pattern with a positive 35mm
Wing Guards
Wings Guards are like a running
board in that the main purpose is
to protect your feet from the
elements. As another benefit they
just look cool. They really seem
to tie the front and the rear of
the trike together. They are
made from tough fiberglass then
supported by mounts in the front,
middle and rear. We cover the
areas where you may step with a
non skid material.
Fender Spoiler Lights
These attractive additions will
give your Roadsmith a nice detail
to the top of the fender.  They
also have running and brake lights
built in.  This could technically be
categorized as safety lighting!
Standard Mudflaps
These will make the person
behind you a little happier in the
rain and make your Roadsmith
look a little classier. They are
mounted right to the frame with
black powder coated brackets.
Lighted Mudflaps
These mudflaps will not only
prevent that big rooster tail from
soaking your buddies behind you,
they have 6" Roadsmith LED lights
in them that function as running
and brake lights.
Wheel Well Trim Package
This is a 3/8" stick on trim that
goes around your wheel opening.  
It just finishes off the bike nicely.
Roadsmith Trike Cover
Protect your trike on its off days
with this cover made of
waterproof, rip-stop nylon.
Crash Bar Mount
This is a mounting bar for the
crash bars that are removed for
trike conversions.  It helps
protect the wing guards from that
accidental brush with disaster.
Trailer Converter
This harness actually plugs right
into the factory harness to give
you a flat four connector for your
"Paint-Ready" Wing Guards
Here are the wing guards prepped
and primed ready to be sanded
and painted.
Main Body Paint
We can paint and match to your
bike's exact color.
Wing Guards Paint
We can paint your wing guards to
match the bike's exact color.

Side Winderz Ground Effects
These pieces attach to the side

new look with accent.  You can
put your standard saddlebag
molding on them or install one of

Chrome Nerf Bumper
Our chrome nerf bumper adds
both protection and classic look
to the back of your Roadsmith.

1/2" steel tubing with caped ends
then fully polished and chrome
plated for years of everlasting
luster.  Functionally, the solid
5/8" bar bolts directly to the
trike's frame.  If you do bump
into something rolling it around
the garage or something, it
doesn't damage the paint finish.
