Hi Guys, I just signed up as a Supporting Vendor and Nick advised it is OK to post here regarding my Gas Strut Kits for the Roadmaster trunk. I was not a fan of the factory tether cords. They work OK I guess, but you have to open the lid "over-center" until the cords hold it. On our trike, due to the lower body extending much farther back than the 2-wheel bikes, this was a bit of a reach, especially for my "vertically-challenged" wife! Additionally, when the lid was fully open, the trunk light was useless unless you needed light on the rear seat. So I decided to remedy the situation and developed a kit (with much encouragement from other RM owners) to replace the tether cords with a pair of gas struts. The gas struts offer the following advantages: Lid holds open at 75 degrees Trunk light shines in trunk (not entirely, but better than stock) Easier to open/close lid The kit is complete with easy DIY photo-illustrated instructions. Takes about an hour to install. No modifications to the bike are required. No holes to drill, etc. The custom-designed CNC machined aluminum mounting brackets bolt onto existing locations using new hardware that is supplied in the kit. For information on ordering, please see my post in the "Parts For Sale" section. Let me know if you have any questions.
