Dirt bike conversion

Just wondering if anyone has a dirt bike/3 wheeler conversion? Or how many companies still do them?  I know BVC still does but anyone else?

I dont understand. Are you asking to go from a 2 to 3 wheels or from 3 to 2 wheels.

I forget what site it was on, either here or .net, but a guy was building 3 wheelers out of crf/yzf 450s. They looked really clean.

I can't find the post. I found a few of my posts stating what I said above, and those were from 2018. So it has been a few years since this guy posted.

I did find some references to a TPC trikes. Looks like they have some info

There was an xr650l on cl here awhile back that was converted to a trike & was even street legal, supposedly.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

Someone in my town converted a wr450 with some yfz450 parts, supposedly it didn't take much to make the swingarm and rear suspension work.  BVC is the only one i'm aware that does that, but I could see AJ Wagoneer building one with some convincing, especially if it's cr500 based :D

does the head angle have to change? TPC built some nice ones but i have heard some horror stories of people getting screwed by him.

Google is most definitely spying on me. This conversion story showed up in my Google feed
