This guy is reproducing tail light lenses for early California Friendship 1 and 2. http://floridasidecarproducts.com/california_sidecar_parts I've bought a couple things from him and am happy with my purchases, but have not tried one of these. They wouldn't fit my III.

BRAKE Pad info -- Last June, I found that I needed brake work on my FS-3 with the F04 Brembo calipers --- came on to these post, got numbers for pads and no one had any at the time in the world -- took my disc rotor and had it turn at the local auto parts and it came out ok -- also bought one from Jay at DMC. So we were ready for a trip, but not pads for the car -- I went to a local shop to hang out and saw some pads that look like they might fit. Brought them and they were the correct ones.

I have been told, these calipers are used quite a bit on choppers -------- the label says --- GMA 'F' PADS Replacement pads for Model 'F' Calipers

My first thought was, Great!  Then I went to GMA's website and saw this..." 

 

 

NOTE THAT MOST GMA CALIPER KITS ARE DISCONTINUED -

WE HAVE REAR CONVERSION KITS AND SOME FRONT CALIPERS AND KITS -

CALL FIRST - DO NOT ORDER ANY GMA PARTS ONLINE

 

 

I plan to order a couple spares tomorrow, just to be safe. 

I did notice, though, that it lists the F caliper as a direct replacement for Harley Davidson- 1984 and up with 11 1/2 inch rotor.  Anyone out there have something they could match this pad up to verify?

Thanks for finding this!

We also stock the pads for the older F04 calipars. We just can not get the calipars or rebuild kits any longer.

Anyone know where I can find a latch for a friendship III? I managed to break the inside latch when closing the sidecar this weekend when I didn't notice it was flipped inward :\ I can run just the outer one to keep the lid closed, but would be nice to find a replacement...

Tire suggestion for Canadians... in a Gold Wing forum I read some good advice regarding checking date codes on tires. Checked the tire on my CSC Friendship II and discovered that it was 17 years old! Obviously not a lot of miles put on my sidecar since new, as there was still lots of tread depth remaining. I found a MotoMaster AW 155/80R13 at Canadian Tire for only $38 - it seems to fit well enough (no rubbing), and I have my height adjust linear actuator set at only 25%, so the tub sits pretty low over the wheel/tire. Cheap Tire, and replacements available at Cdn Tire stores coast to coast.

Well, CSC is holding true to form. 

They pick some of the oddest interchange parts. 

I lost a lug nut and played hell finding one to fit.  It's a standard 1/2-20 thread, but extends through the rim.  Finally came up with a match...Wouldn't you know?  A 1980 AMC Eagle!
