Casarva Triumph Street Twin 900 trike
The Triumph Street Twin 900 has classic styling and the trike has a Casarva chain drive IRS trike conversion with Reverse Gearbox. The exhausts are rerouted in stainless steel with brushed stainless heat shields to match the OEM Triumph silencers which have been re routed to exit either side at the rear.
Fitted with “Lattice” alloy wheels and LED Stop Tail Lights and Indicators and the panniers were lifted up out of the way of the top suspension wishbones.
The mechanical reverse gearbox is fitted in line with 2 chains, one from the engine and the other from the reverse gearbox to the rear differential with a gear lever given reverse options in all gears.
The conversion is bolted to the bikes frame after being blasted, zinc primed and powder coated.
Casarva Protech Shocks and Casarva Anti-roll bar in EN43 spring steel make sure the handling and comfort is is great. A new rad disk braking system is fitted with larger rear brake master cylinder and hydraulic / mechanical calipers and a Stainless Trigger handbrake lever.
What is Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) on a trike?
Casarva IRS (independent Rear Suspension) trikes handle better and and are more comfortable to ride than those with a solid axles. The tyres stay planted in the road surface giving you maximum control if the road gets a little tricky because each side has its own suspension system which are connected by an anti-roll bar made in spring steel. This assists the shock absorbers in keeping the rear end planted, reduces rider shock and assists with steering.
The drive line irrespective of being shaft, belt or chain, has a differential which allows the wheels to turn independently of each other via half shafts which have been tailor made to each trike and there are options on the track width and wheelbase length to make sure that the trike is set up to be the best it can be. Tyres and wheel size are selected to works best with each trike – one size definitively does not fit all not fit all.
