Plenty of sportster trike conversion kits out there. Also seen a system that has outrigger weels that automaticly come down at a stop to support the bike, then retract when you take off.

Injury is my grandfather, he has ridden his whole life. He is 69 years old, has three motorcycles, lives to ride, and I don't know how to help him. He asked me yesterday to help him sell one of his favorite bikes. I just can't do it. Not yet....I want to explore my options. Thanks for all the replies..great advice..
Have a safe weekend.

While I hate to get banned, I would suggest you look at some Japanese bikes that weigh in the 400-450 pound range, if they are light enough, that is.
