Ironhead Cafe'...after I find a vintage Corbin Gunfighter seat, I think I'm about done with it...unless I pursue that 2-1 exhaust project I never finished...

Now that brings back some memories...I bought an XLX brand new in 1984, my first and only Harley.

That doesn't leave one with much confedence in the production bike. THe bike looks sweet until you take a trip over the bars when the fender stops the front wheel.

This seems a good thread: opinions please:





With or without fairing? Keep in mind that if I install the fairing I'll also be repainting it and installing (lower) clips ons. On the photo the fairing is just layed on the bike without any work.


On one side I really like the fairing. Besides: I've never seen a CX cafe with a fairing before, that's nice too. But on the other side: It's a very nice bike without the fairing too, so why go trough all the trouble?

I like it both with and without the fairing. Choice is good - and either choice looks good to me.

The fairing is very "old school cool" but I like the line of the bike better without it. But who cares. It only matters what you think. Either way you've got a unique and fun looking ride.

I don't mind the fairing, but prefer it without. Especially if you replace the gauge pod with something a little simpler.

Vote for the fairing, ESPECIALLY after you get it better integrated with the bike.

Other suggestion I'd have is to ditch the Comstars, but I suspect that's a lot of work on the back. Overall, very nice job.

Dorzok- That fairing is excellent. Looks great on the bike. I would so run it especially with your plans for paint etc. Great bike.
