Honda Trike Conversion for the GL1800 Model: 2012


All New Design - Same Great Performance
The VIPER was designed from the ground up exclusively for the 2012 & newer Honda Goldwing 1800. It captures Honda’s new styling changes and incorporates a perfect match of the LED trike tail lights to the Goldwing tour box lights accented with a trunk door spoiler light as a standard feature. The trunk door has been made wider for easier access and opens to the one of the largest trunk storage areas in the industry 8 cubic feet.

At its core, a fully independent suspension system based on light weight cast aluminum smoothes the roughest road, 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.

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 is required.

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

Viper 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. Our braking systems surpass all others in efficiency and safety with truly confidence-inspiring braking performance.

The Viper 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.

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.
