CSC Honda Cobra XL

Honda Trike Conversion for the GL1800 Models: 2001-2010


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. Aggressive styling and the most innovative performance engineered suspension available will keep you riding in the front of the pack.

We took the opportunity to re-design our Cobra kit to offer 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 one of the largest trunk spaces for any Honda GL1800 trike kit on the market.

At its core, a fully independent suspension system based on light weight cast aluminum will smooth the roughest of roads, while providing responsive handling to the driver. A gas charged coil-over shock and chromoly anti-roll bar work together to control body lean and keep the trike flat through the most demanding curves. Our proprietary brake calipers and fully integrated linked braking system delivers unmatched braking power and control. Add the 6 degree Power Trak to create supreme steering feel and control.

Final Drive Gear: CSC specific aluminum differential housing and gearing 

Driveshaft: One piece vibration free automotive style shaft with automotive u-joints
Our braking systems surpass all others in efficiency and safety with truly confidence-inspiring braking performance. 

Cobra XL brakes are completely integrated with O.E.M Linked Braking and fully ABS Integrated.
Application specific, proprietary, patented, CNC machined, four-piston, aluminum alloy brake calipers.
Our performance upgrade offers drilled & nickel plated rotors with vented and red anodized calipers for improved heat dissipation.

The Cobra XL comes standard with 5-spoke American Racing wheels with a sharp silver powder coat finish. The 205/55R16 All Season radial tires provide the highest level of performance and control in all riding conditions. Optional OEM matching 17” chrome directional wheels are available. Wheels are 16 x 7in, ET35, 5 on 100mm bolt pattern. 

CSC delivers 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. Trike bodies are painted using top of the line urethane paints and clears, with a 2-3 part paint process and 3 clear coats. These are the same paints and clears supplied to Honda. Bodies are wet sanded and then polished in a two-step process to achieve an exquisite paint finish.

All California Sidecar Trike conversions are completely bolt-on kits. No welding required.

Every kit we sell comes with mounting hardware, detailed photo instructions, wiring harnesses, and technical support.

About CSC:

California Sidecar was started in 1975 in California, and was purchased in 1985 by the current owner with a vision to expand the product line and grow the company. Soon after, California Sidecar expanded into motorcycle cargo trailers with the purchase of the Escapade brand. The Friendship series of Sidecars and the Escapade line of trailers were both redesigned and became the industry sales leaders by the early 1990's.
