    Since my friend was diagnosed with Mienere's Disease she can't ride a motorcycle anymore but she could handle a trike.
    I was toying with the idea though of putting an ATV rear end under her Hondamatic 400 but it has to be a limited slip. Are there any ATVs out there that have a limited slip or even an open differential? Would be nice to find one at salvage that I could just basically hack and weld onto her bike instead of paying 25k for a monster goldwing/harley custom setup.

    Most sport quads have a solid rear axle and the 4x4's that independent rear suspension are not engineered to do any kind of street speeds. I would say this would be the wrong direction.

    Nah, I was thinking of retrofitting her CM400. It's her baby and even though she can't ride it, she will never get rid of it. So figured I would investigate making it into a trike to allow her to ride it again.

    you might have better luck looking into a quaffe diff they will take as much power as you can throw out of a bike out then and they can handle street speeds
