About our Trike Conversions Kits (scroll down for more information):

Manufactured to our high standard the BRUTE Shaft and Chain Drive trike kits are manufactured by us in 1 1/4" tube. The BRUTE trike kit is designed to follow the larger tube we find on the bike frames. Our conversion cradle - developed by us over 10 years - is constantly under development and review and we use a BMW E39 5 Series Diff, half-shafts and hubs as a donor.

If you want to have all the parts you need delivered to your door from Casarva we will be happy to give you a comprehensive list including wheels, stainless steel silencers, handbrakes, callipers and more. Just contact us.

Our Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) trike kit  set up greatly improves the ride comfort and overall handling of your trike. And it can be even further enhanced by the addition of an Anti Roll Bar which we manufacture from Spring Steel EN43. This is only £210 inc VAT and includes all linkages and clamps with the mounting points being added to the cradle and lower wishbones when we manufacture your order.

Having fitted many of these on various different bikes, we can also say that it is universal in its application. We have sold many trike kits around the world and the feedback has been that the kit is straightforward to 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)

If you want more we can we have options on wheel and mudguard designs, lights, Reverse Shaft AND Chain drive mechanical gearboxes, Casarva Polished Stainless Steel Racks, Sissy and Bull bars, custom seats, electronic quickshifters, custom paint either new or to match the bikes existing even if it is airbrushed and more!
