Same Cobra Style Now Available with Double the Trunk space

We took the opportunity to re-design our Cobra kit to offer our market a
choice of an enlarged trunk capacity for the existing 2001 to 2010 GL1800’s
without sacrificing styling or performance.  We believe you will find the
COBRA XL at first glance hard to distinguish from our current kit, thus
maintaining the same elegant soft lines that have made our Cobra kit so
popular.  What you will discover is a trunk space that is now almost double in
size at 8 cu. ft.  This larger capacity trunk makes our COBRA XL model the
largest trunk space for any trike kits for Honda’s GL1800 in the market.
Style. Performance. Attitude. That sums up the COBRA XL 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 XL 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 XL 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 integration.

  • 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 XL 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.
