    Hi - have completed my trike conversion. It’s a Ken Higgins Trike kit on a 70’s Raleigh (25” frame). It’s a bit of a homage to Ray Booty (if anyone out there remembers him - he was a phenomenal rider in the 50s/60s, Nottingham-based and multiple BBAR record holder as well as winning the 58 Commonwealth Games Road Race in Cardiff. He was sponsored by Raleigh and held trike records as well as his many on two wheels). Hope this is of interest. Incidentally, having last tried to ride a trike 53 years ago - the sensation now is no better so I’ll be selling the trike!

    Ken Higgins or Ken Rogers?

    Great trike. Hope you master it.

    I'd guess Ken Rogers. At 25" that frame would have fitted The Boot.
