Cafe Fairing ID?

Hi, I just found this at a barn sale, believe it or not, and I'm having a difficult time figuring out a maker, or what bike it was on. I do believe the turn signals are Yamaha RD style, but that is as much as I can tell at this time.

Any help is appreciated; I'm just off center enough to build a bike to fit this thing...

Turn signals look like 70's honda to me. The fairing looks like a rickman inspired

I'm inclined to agree with you; I said almost the exact same thing to the people at the barn sale.

I agree on the Rickman inspiration, as it was the first word that went through my head when I saw it. (Okay, first word was "MINE!!")

But the signals really look R5/RD250 to me.

Anyone with any guesses?

I'd really like to fit this to its intended bike.

Bumping this back up.

It really looks like it was designed for a specific bike/series of bikes, and I would love to find the manufacturer of the fairing, or the bike itself it was designed for.

I am betting it is some sort of Hannigan. What did I win?

I was thinking the same thing, Vern. Hannigan loved that Yamaha turnsignal.

I suggest that you go to the Airtech website and look through their vintage fairings pages. Lots of close examples there.

Nice score!
