Superb Engineering & Design

Style. Performance. Attitude. That sums up the COBRA by CSC
Trike. It makes a statement, whether in the parking lot or on your
favorite winding roads, "don't mess with me". Aggressive styling and
the most innovative performance-engineered suspension available
will keep you riding in the front of the pack with venomous rule!

At its core, a race-honed, fully independent suspension system
crafted largely from weight-saving aluminum, smoothes the
roughest road, while providing responsive handling to the driver.
Mono shock design and race blades work together to control body
lean and keep the trike flat through the most demanding curves and
our proprietary brake caliper (patent pending) and fully integrated
link-brake system deliver unmatched braking power and control. At
the same time, our independent suspension delivers a soft, cushy
ride to both passenger and driver, making every mile more
enjoyable. Add the Power Trak 1800 to create supreme steering
feel and control.

Hands down, the most innovative suspension engineering design on the market! Based on Indy car
technology, the COBRA features a vertically stabilized opposing rocker mono shock independent
suspension, plus:
  • Purpose designed QA1 shock for the Opposing Rocker arm system
  • QA1-300 lb. linear wound racing spring designed to accommodate a loaded weight of up to 650lbs.
  • inclusive of accessories, luggage, and passengers. (Lighter spring weights available)
  • O.E.M. electro hydraulic preload adjuster is retained for preload adjustment by the rider to
    compensate for varying loads
A custom cast & machined aluminum differential houses our purpose built proprietary ring and pinion.
Our driveshaft was designed by our engineers and is machined from solid pre-hardened 4340 alloy steel.
It is then nitrided for wear prevention and a final Electroless nickel plating is applied for superior
corrosion resistance.
Truly masterful engineering went into the design of California Sidecar Trike's COBRA disc brake system
and the result is truly confidence-inspiring braking performance. The brakes are completely integrated
with the O.E.M Linked Braking System and we are the only trike manufacturer to offer full ABS
  • Proprietary, patented, CNC machined four-piston aluminum alloy brake caliper
  • 11.5" purpose-designed cast rotor
  • Check out our Performance Brake Upgrade option.
The COBRA comes standard with 5-spoke Vision wheels with a sharp silver powder coat finish. Optional
Chrome Wheel Upgrade available. The 205/60R15 All Season radial tires provide the highest level of
performance and control in all riding conditions.
In typical California Sidecar Trike fashion, we've crafted a body with an aggressive, sleek style that
perfectly complements the GL1800 Goldwing. The body is equipped with Honda taillights, halogen
reverse lights, and rear chrome trim accent strip. Each painted body comes with the finest finish in the
business. Our in-house fiberglass and paint departments insure the highest degree of quality control and
the color match capability is unsurpassed. At California Sidecar we use the same paints and clears
supplied to Honda. Bodies are wet sanded and then polished in a two-step process to achieve an amazing
paint finish.
All California Sidecar Trike conversions are completely bolt-on kits. No welding required.
3 year/50,000 mile limited warranty includes parts and labor on material and workmanship defects.
