GL 1500 csc trike rear brakes and calipers?

Postby waynedudes » Sun Jun 19, 2016 6:24 am



I have a question about rear braking system on CSC Trike. I have a 1994 GL 1500, with CSC conversion. I need to find out what vehicle the rear brakes, rotors, and calipers are from? The rear end is from Mustang. But I can not figure out exactly which vehicle and year that the rear braking system is from? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info, but I am trying to find out the manufacturer? Are the brakes and calipers made my CSC, or some other company? Thanks in advance.

I called CSC, asked them which pads for mine. They told me to remove pads, take a picture of it, & email it to them. That way they could look at it & tell me which pads I need. Smart huh?
Still haven't taken that picture.

I am hoping to eventually, find out who manufactures calipers and pads for the GL1500 trike. I do have a part # on the calipers: V1502? Have tried to locate manufacturer, or if these will fit others, besides Trike? Maybe I will take pictures of Caliper and pads? Post it on Facebook...

After much research I believe I have found the answers about CSC rear Brakes and calipers, On a CSC GL1500 conversion, the calipers and pads, are from 1967-71 VW Karman Ghia, front! The ones on my trike are made by Varga, # V1502 (Brazilian Company), There are two types of pads. One type has one center pin, and the other has two pins to hold pad in place. Auto zone sells both. My trike has the two pin type. $13.99 at Autozone, for both sides. They also sell the one pin caliper. Caliper is $49.99 each. Still looking for caliper rebuild kit. Just in case I ever have to rebuild. Hope this will assist others.
