• Side by Side Photos / 2018 GL1800 with CSC Encore

    Side by sides of the bike with the trike! 2018 GL1800 CSC Encore. The tail pipes shown on the trike are not the actual ones. The new ones are coming soon! While they are not exact to the Honda ones, they will be very similar and fit well with the Encore body design!

      Here at California Sidecar, a big part of the designing and engineering process is to prove that both ends of the machine can hold up to each other. This process includes real life on the road testing and laboratory testing.

      The CSC test riders put over 20,000+ miles on the machine during this process to ensure that you, the customer has no issues.

      Tommy Tabor has tested several CSC trikes throughout the years. That's correct; His job here is to RIDE! Not a position he is willing to give up any time soon!

      Great lines on the new kit! Something that will give me great thought in my purchase next year. On the downside, I would not use the pic with Tommy Tabor riding the CSC trike, since the trike is missing its side cover. May not be good for business.

      Otherwise, definitely you have a winner.

      Sweeeeeeet ... really nice. Seems maybe a little wider than others? More stable? Either way ... it's a winner.

      I like that the rear rims look a little more like the stock Wing front rim.

      Very Streamlined looking

      Is this the 7 speed automatic we are looking at?

      Beautiful lines and you matched the new Wing perfectly. Can't wait to see the running boards added.

      Very nice trike. I have yet to see a CSC trike that I didn't like so I am looking forward to seeing the Encore.

      Great job.

      Looks like the red Tour has the 6 speed but the one with the rider there's no clutch lever so I'm assuming that's the DCT version

      VERY VERY NICE conversion. Along with the new Wing it's going to be one heck of a NICE TRIKE. Can not wait to test ride one.

      NICE! Looks much sportier than most "wings".

      Personally, I don't care for the Grampa's Barc-O-Lounger look of most wing trikes.

      What's under the glass is just as important as body style though.

      That is a lot of machine and very futuristic looking.

      Like it!! Makes me consider trading/selling my 2013 ROADSMITH HSC. Wonder what they have done about raking the front end. From the PIC it didn't look raked.
