Contact Paughco. 1-800-423-2621.
Have always found them to be very helpful.

Any chance the fender is tweaked?

trike wheel off center by outside rim and hub in center of axle

thanks to all but you all r wrong,the wheel has been set up to the thousandth of an inch,new paughco springer,still off of center by fender mounts.called paughco,can't get any place there,they swear their springer is straight.They told me some bikes front wheel is set off center,I never heard this in 60 years of bikes.I need somebody who really knows trikes and how they should be set up,the damn thing still pulls slightly to the right and Ive bought new frame ,new springer,frankenstein rear.I don't know if springer works on trike which all I see is glides on them except the old 45's.This has been a problem for almost 2 years and that's why I bought all new n still a problem.help

Thay are all wrong...
Weird... they asked for pics, can you upload one?

Does the bike run true down the road? Never mind, I see you said it pulls to right.

Couldn't a problem in the rear on a Trike mimic a front end, pulling condition?
If the right rear is dragging....... :dunno

:nod My thoughts.
Right rear brake dragging.
Axel/wheel bearing bad.

Just cause the front end pulls does not mean something, other then, is not pushing it to do so.

Curious too where the front fender was purchased from.
Sounds like some big $$$ were spent. At least on the front end.
No information on the other parts sources.
