So today, my 86 year old neighbor and I were talking about bikes, and then he told me he was looking for a trike conversion kit for his wife's beach cruiser. I would like to surprise him by finding a kit and giving it to him. I have tried looking all over the internet for some for around $50 or so. Are there any out there that cheap? It doesn't need to be brand new. Thanks for the help. :)

There was some "talk" about this in the Utility forums some time back. I think Sianelle is the one who had used one.

Look in the cruisers/lowrider websites...
Here is one (http://www.spookytoothcycles.com/component/page,shop.product_details/category_id,74/flypage,shop.flypage/product_id,178/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,1/vmcchk,1/) but it is ~$200 which seems to be the low average price. Here is another one (http://www.choppersus.com/store/product/740/Trike-Kit---Heavy-Duty-BLACK/) but doesn't seem as complete. Best bet would be to find a used trike somewhere or buy a new one. WM is selling a complete Chinese Schwinn Trike (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5679542) for $250. Might be the best way to go if someone will go over it with a fine tooth comb for him.
