CSC Blog | The Voice of CSC Motorcycles.+Add.Feed Info1000FOLLOWERS
CSC Motorcycles is a well know name associated with the industry leaders like Harley Davidson spare parts and high-quality accessories in 1989 and designed the updated version of the famous Mustang Scooter.
One of the questions I frequently hear when people read the blog, visit the plant, see us at the shows, or follow our moto adventures is: How do you get into the motorcycle business?
Well, if you want to get into the motorcycle business, it’s like most other businesses: You start in an entry-level job. And we’re hiring folks in entry-level positions right now. We’re talking about working in the stock room, pushing motorcycles in and out of the shop, maybe doing an oil change now and then under the tutelage of our more experienced moto techs, detailing bikes, sweeping the floors when they need sweeping, and things like that. We’ve got a lot going on right now with new bikes coming in from Zongshen, tire shipments arriving daily, the daily inflow and outflow of parts and accessories, and more. The most important attributes for success here at CSC are a willingness to work hard, the ability to show up on time every day (and wow, that’s never been an easy thing to find), working well with others, and a desire to learn and grow.
So, do you think it have what it takes? If you do and you’re in So Cal, shoot your info to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During our stay in Baja, we’ll spend a night in Santa Rosalia and when we do that, my favorite place to stay is the Frances Hotel. It’s a former brothel situated high on a mesa overlooking the city and the Sea of Cortez. It’s a really cool old place landmark goes back to the 1800s, it’s made entirely of wood, and it’s just a neat place to spend a night…
Keep an eye on the blog next month, folks…we’ll be posting the Baja sights every night right here on the CSC blog!
Like I always say, we do see interesting motorcycles here at CSC. The focus today was on two interesting 3-wheelers this morning. The first is a really cool Gold Wing trike on our showroom floor…
…and the second was on a super-cool, sidecar-equipped Ural…
The Urals have an interesting history. They were basically reverse-engineered from a BMW just prior to World War II, which is something I describe in more detail in my book about military and police motorcycles. The book is out of print now, but it is about to go back into print (watch for more info here on the blog). I always thought it would be cool to have a Ural. One of these days…
So I’m sitting at home today catching up on things with recorded episodes of American Pickers rolling on the TV (love that show), and I saw this Range Rover commercial. A couple of clicks on YouTube later I found this, and I knew I had to put it on the blog…
You’ve probably heard that expression before, and there’s nowhere it’s more true than on a motorcycle. What you may not have heard is that here at CSC we have an extensive selection of competitively-priced helmets (from Shoei and HJC) and outerwear (from Tourmaster and Cortech) to meet whatever riding need you have. Warm gear is critically important when you’re on a motorcycle, and you can times that statement by two if you’ve ever been caught in the rain on a long ride. We’ve got it all (helmets, jackets, gloves, and motorcycle pants), so give us a call if you don’t.
For you folks riding Baja with us, you’ll want to be here the day before we leave, and that gives you time to suit up with the right kind of gear! For everyone else, give us a call at 909 445 0900 and we’ll help you with whatever you need.
This is an interesting project Gerry’s working for one of our customers. It’s an old R100 that’s being reborn as a BMW Bobber. It was a complete teardown to the bare bones, with extensive gusseting on the frame prior to a repaint, and lots of engine work. There’s much more to come on this puppy…
As this project progresses, we’ll include more photos. It looks like fun, and it’s just one of the things our fully-equipped shop gets into. The menu includes routine service and maintenance, custom V-twins, restoration projects, and more. If you need help on your project, give us a call at 909 445 0900 and ask for Gerry.
Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park on an RX3! It was all part of the 5000-mile CSC Western America Adventure Ride, conceived in Chongqing at Zongshen’s worldwide headquarters, planned at CSC, and executed by one of the best groups I’ve ever ridden with.
Where it all began…conceiving the Western America Adventure Ride in Chongqing!
We had one hell of a grand time on that ride, captured well by Joe Gresh in his video about our adventure…

On the road to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming!
One of the cool things about the Western America Adventure Ride was all the great spots we got to visit. I wrote Destinations pieces for Motorcycle Classics magazine about many of them, including a recent one about Grand Teton National Park.
You can click on the link to get to the Grand Teton article, and you can buy 5000 Miles at 8000 RPM to get the story behind the entire ride.
I saw this excellent YouTube video a week or so ago and I meant to put it on the blog, and then I got busy on other things. My good buddy Greg spotted it as well and he sent the link to me last night, which was a good reminder for me to get with the program and post it. EachAdventure, well down, and Greg, thanks for the email (hey, we’ll see you in Baja!).
