    Yes, it is going to have the raked front end. It is in development.

    What a tease! CSC, could you please show us some pics of the back end and side views of this new trike? Wait, I had to go to your Facebook area and I am not even on FB to find a rear-end pic of your new Encore. Sweeeeeeeeet!

    I suspect that the trunk opens up because in their literature, they say it mimics the Goldwing trunk. I called the factory this afternoon to get some questions answered and I have got to tell you that I think CSC is literally going to be knocking the ball out of the proverbial park.

    The owner advised that they have taken about a month worth of orders and so the next availability for builds will be into August at the factory. However, CSC's business model is to essentially sell their kits to installing dealers and I was advised that there are numerous dealers close to me that do a lot of installs and are very expert at what they do. We all have to remember that CSC has lots of installs of their Viper configuration which essentially uses most of the components that are going into the new Encore body so the familiarity of the dealers with the install should be quite high.

    What is really exciting about this project is that it piggybacks off of CSC's existing build technology and the added engineering comes into play in terms of how the CSC supports integration with the existing new Honda frame. I was also advised that some of the electronic features of the new Goldwing are spared in the trike build which is an amazing feat.

    Given that the frontal area of the new Goldwing is narrower and Honda has slightly decreased the fuel capacity, CSC is carefully looking at how the diminished frontal presentation will affect fuel consumption with the rear fenders protruding a bit farther out in the wind relative to the new front but not wider than their Viper series and will be discerning if there is a greater need for the $600 optional built-in fuel cell which adds about 3-3.5 gallons of usable fuel. It will be something that people will want to more routinely order if they plan to ride in areas like the West where fuel can be a bit more scarce than the Eastern part of the USA.

    I must say that I am extremely impressed with the attention to detail that CSC has devoted to the development of the Encore trike kit. One additional amazing feature of the new ensemble is that they are very pleased with how the DCT automatic transmission is performing with this new kit. I suspect that a majority of the kits will be spec'd with the 7-speed DCT instead of the traditional 6-speed standard?

    The taillight is a prototype. The actual taillights are coming in shortly. Also, note the two different type wheels. One is chrome and one is painted silver or black to match the bikes' front wheel. The lightbar is also shown chromed and painted in black. There is a seat photo here also to show how we incorporated the passenger heated seat switch.

    There are a few more photos of the rear that we are having trouble posting for whatever reason. To see those click these links:

    Well I think CSC has done a great job with the Encore! I had a Vantage on my Yamaha 1900cc, with ground effects and box, and I loved every mile of the 30,000 miles I rode on it! I was very pleased with the CSC kit and would be ecstatic with this kit and am anxious to see the ground effects add on......thanks, AGAIN, CSC with great design and products.

    We are designing a rake. It is coming along!

    I hope that you keep the prototype tail lights. They are mildly futuristic and I think blend quite well with the new more angular design of the Goldwing.

    The trunk opens down. Same as the Viper.

    I like the tail lights, I hope they stay too. They just work well with the lines of the trike.

    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!

    That is quite possibly the best case of Butt Kissing I've ever heard.....And really mad at myself for not going there first!

    Those surely do look good. I'm into home made trikes because they are cheap to make. I do not skimp on the metal I use (1/4" steel minimum). Wish I could afford a trike like yours.

    Nicely done. Have you tested it with the DCT transmission? Any issues with the DCT's reliability when it is pulling around that extra weight?

    Our test bike is a DCT. We are putting 20,000+ on the road miles on it. No issues to date.

    Default CSC DCT

    Anxious to learn how the DCT holds up on the CSC, that is one big plus. I noticed in the Face Book show how large the trunk was.

    Really like the new look. I would like to see the aqua shields or running boards on this trike to give it a sleek and finished look. of course that's my own opinion.

    I think CSC has done a phenomenal job on the conversion. My thoughts are that the Honda top trunk looks like an afterthought. This is not being critical of CSC, more critical of Honda. Maybe CSC can come up with a design that melds the trunk in with the fenders of the trike.

    +1 on Don's thoughts. The stock Honda trunk looks like a little football sitting on the beautifully sculpted and wide rear section of the CSC design. I can't imagine that it would be that difficult for CSC to design a more integrated top trunk and do away with that little Honda football afterthought although it would likely add to their cost of development/production.

    How did the fuel consumption reports turn out on the new smaller profile 2018 Honda Goldwing front end? Was there much of a difference between the Encore and the older models of the GW and the Viper?

    Default CSC Encore Exhaust Tips

    Piece by piece! I had to stop the rig to get a picture of the new exhaust tips that arrived for the CSC Encore. Just in time for Americade! Still working on those ground effects however. We know there are quite a few of you that are anxious to see those too. Perfection takes time! These tips are an excellent match and we are proud of them! #americade2018 #trikingitout #californiasidecar #2018GL1800 #CSCEncoreClick image for larger version.
