California Sidecar releases Volusia Trike Kit

California Sidecar has announced the release of the new Volusia Trike Conversion kit for Harley-Davidson Softails®. Inspired by Formula 1 Racecar technology, the Volusia is California Sidecar’s sportiest and best handling trike to date.

The Volusia offers an entirely new concept in Harley-Davidson trike conversions. Unlike other kits, which are old concepts redesigned to fit various Harley motorcycles, the Volusia was designed specifically for Softails®. With its low center of gravity, stiff chassis and proven CSC Independent Suspension, the Volusia offers a smooth ride coupled with a sleek look. The design follows the classic lines of the Softail®, making the trike a vehicle suited for cruising both in comfort and in style. Engineered to fit all 2000 through 2009 Softail® models (except Springer® models), the Volusia offers the quality craftsmanship and performance consumers have come to expect from California Sidecar.

Standard on the Volusia is a performance designed independent suspension with vertically stabilized opposing Rocker Mono Shocks that allow riders the best of both worlds – the stability of a trike and the handling of a two-wheeler. Also standard on the Volusia are a twin reduction jackshaft belt drive with a 90 mm Gates performance belt kit and gas carburized sprockets, as well as disc brakes featuring Varga calipers with an 11.5-inch purpose-designed rotor. Optional upgrades include a performance brake package, fully adjustable shocks with a handlebar-mounted switch that allows for suspension adjustments "on-the-fly," and an electric belt-driven reverse.

California Sidecar specializes in trike conversions, sidecars and motorcycle cargo trailers that have been providing consumers with the perfect blend of form and function for more than 25 years.

California Sidecar Trike conversion kits are only available through factory trained authorized dealers. For more information on the Volusia or California Sidecar’s other product lines or to see a complete list of authorized dealers, please call (800) 824-1523 or visit
