Motorcycle USA takes a spin on two of California Sidecars three-wheeled conversion kits for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, one that uses the classic lines of the Heritage Softail and the other a sporty conversion for model year 2000-up Softails.
- The CSC conversions we sampled sourced stock Harley-Davidson engines which could have used a little hopping-up for our liking in order to counteract the extra weight and shift in aerodynamics the rear bodywork brings.
- Custom controls, a big 21-inch front hoop and lots of chrome accessories contribute to the racy look of the CSC Custom. Now if I can just remember to keep my feet up.
- CSC's Volusia is classy and comfortable and comes with a generous amount of storage.
- The flip-up trunk of CSC's Custom is long and narrow so don't expect to throw your helmet in here.
- The 2010 CSC Custom combines a chopper front end and a hot rod rear in a sporty three-wheeled ride.
- We give CSC props for making a trike with some hot rod chops.
- The CSC Volusia trike conversion has the same graceful styling as H-D's Heritage Softail.
- The Volusia's drivetrain features purpose-built sprockets and a twin-reduction jackshaft belt drive.
- The Volusia trike conversion kit is styled to complement the classic lines of Harley-Davidson's Heritage Classic.
- The Volusia has a vertically stabilized, opposing rocker, mono-shock independent suspension.
- We headed up Sturgis' Vanocker Canyon to test the handling characteristics of the CSC Volusia.
