Three Point Suspension
A trike has suspension problems no one ever thought of before, because when you take a moving weight and suspend it at three points, the world of rolling dynamics changes dramatically. In 1995, California Sidecar Trike introduced the concept of a fixed three point suspension system featuring two high-performance Progressive Suspension shocks.

Several features of the Progressive shock make it uniquely well suited for the California Sidecar Trike application. The Progressive shock spring is a true progressive rate spring that eliminates the constant minor road bumps while also handling the really big ones. Additionally, the shock is gas charged, meaning high pressure nitrogen gas forces oil in place of air bled out of the shock cavity. This eliminates shock fade caused by residual air bubbles, especially when cornering, the most critical maneuver with any three-wheeled vehicle. Finally, the shock has sophisticated multi-stage automatic damping with a five position preload adjustable cam.

We've also incorporated the OEM air shock, allowing you to fine tune the ride for varying load and road conditions. The result is a California Sidecar Trike suspension that leaves the competition in the dust!

In-line Driveshaft
The bottom line - the California Sidecar Trike uses an in-line drive shaft.

One of the most critical components on a solid-axle suspension, the driveline experiences more wear forces, and transfers more vibration energy, than any other component of a trike. If a drive shaft is spun in an axis that is not perpendicular to its power source, the spinning ends will try to spin in an elliptical or oval pattern rather than in a perfectly round circle. The rear end, axles, and wheels all work in unison to restrain the unstable drive shaft. The result is vibration, which causes undue wear and tear on the universal joints as well as discomfort and pilot fatigue.

At California Sidecar Trike, we modify the rear end to acccomodate an in-line driveshaft. It is the only proper way to build a solid axle suspension vehicle that will safely perform to the high standards of California Sidecar.

Disc Brake System
Introduced in 1998, our revolutionary three-disc braking system surpasses all others in efficiency and safety. Consider the challenge: With the OEM brake system, the hand brake operates the right front caliper and the foot brake operates the left front caliper AND rear wheel caliper. This is fine for two wheels, but not three and here's why. If an emergency braking situation aries while cornering, and a wheel lifts, the natural inclination is to hit the foot brake. This could cause a three-wheeled vehicle to flip because of the left front caliper being activated. With the California Sidecar Trike system, the foot brake operates only the dual rear calipers, while the hand brake, with a newly modified master cylinder, operates both front calipers. The net result is a significant reduction in stopping distance, easier maintenance, and greater peace of mind.


Wheels & Tires
Aluminum rims are made exclusively for California Sidecar Trike. The "Hammer Style", brushed aluminum finish wheels are mounted and balanced with P205/70R14 Sigma Supreme All Season radial tires, designed for safe riding in all weather conditions. Chrome wheels are available as an option.
Rear End
We use a remanufactured 8" Ford Mustang rear end that is built with new axles, bearings and seals. The rear end is shortened to achieve an offset differential and the axles are cut and re-splined, NOT re-welded. The 3.00 gear ratio is the optimum choice for fuel economy and performance.

Trunk Storage
Spacious 3.6 cubit feet of trunk space is more than the equivalent of two GL1500 saddelbags. The trunk opens with the existing saddlebag levers, eliminating the need for unsightly handles on the trunk lid. Automotive quality carpet kit to protect your gear is available as an option.

Superior Quality Finish
The finest finish in the business. In-house fiberglass and paint departments insure the highest degree of quality control. Our 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. Bodies are wet sanded and then polished in a two-step process to achieve an exquisite paint finish.

Bolt-on Installation
Trike conversions are completely bolt-on kits. No welding required.

Power Trak™ = Available for the GL1500 Goldwing

Why you should choose Power TrakTM for your GL1500 Goldwing
  • New upper and lower triple clamps cast from high grade aluminum alloy A206, with a yield strength of 85,000 lbs.
  • Fork tubes machined from 4310 chomemoly aircraft quality alloy steel heat treated to a tensile strength of between 100,000-125,000 PSI, well exceeding OEM tubes. Fork tubes are ground and polished to a high gloss, then nickel plated, hard chromed and then finally, cylindrically ground to create an optimum sealing surface and roundness. Internal dimensions are identical to OEM tubes, allowing the use of all aftermarket damping accessories.
  • Machined steering stem with new lower bearing and seal
  • Double glycor bushings increase bearing surface for the fork lower to maintain a more linear function

How Does Power Trak™ work?
By extending the fork tubes and changing the angle of the triple clamps, we have reduced the trial which creates "easy steering without oversteering".

We're so confident in our product, that if you are not completely satisfied with the results, we will give you a full and prompt refund.



How Does Power Trak™ work?
