    I’m not sure but I think the Full Fat is based upon the Adventure HD cruciform so with a Full Fat rear end and a front suspension kit, making you own Full Fat is plausible if rather expensive. All the bits for such a mod’ are available from ICE. For riding in the big country (America) where you’ve got acres of off-road to go at such a machine is a cool idea and just maybe there is an in-between way that would give you the best of both worlds where you can switch from road to trail and back again quite easily. Cost has to become a major consideration and with the latest ICE price hike it is almost more cost effective for me in the UK to purchase in a ‘foreign’ country so I will be staying with what I’ve got, my ‘T’ and changing to my ‘semi skimmed’ trike when the off-road bug has it’s occasional bite.
