Trike conversion kit

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 but it is ~$200 which seems to be the low average price. Here is another one 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 for $250. Might be the best way to go if someone will go over it with a fine tooth comb for him.
