It came with the factory fairing, but his wife's statement is "Why would you put El McPherson in a Burka, hide that engine, I think not".

Mine gets pretty terrible mileage for its size also. The power doesn't really come on till about 6000rpm. It's a slow turd, but it's a hell of a lot of fun.

Very nice. Brings back fond memories of sitting on a hill in Logan Canyon (Utah) listening to several of them come past us way below on the highway, nearly 40 years ago. Still can hear them going through the gears.

oops, had to edit, that's 16k miles, not 16! yeah it's missing it's baffles and sounds very raspy. I wouldn't have bought it without those pipes
