    Ugly early 70's "Calafia Eliminator" fairing. Very heavy, thick plastic of some sort. I saw a NOS one listed on IBMWR site for something like $750.00 or some rediculous amount.:lol3 I gave mine away.

    That's a good one, first guess it a Michel but the headlight area is reworked and that's probably not likely.

    It hasn't been modified, and uses a stock RS fairing bracket. I bought it off eBay from a guy in Taiwan.

    Well, that explains it, its a taiwan fairing :D

    So the person you bought it from didn't know what it was? Looks like an "S" windshield.
    Anyway you're at the right place to get an answer I'd think or try the Airheads.org site.

    No, he had no clue, and the language difference didn't help. I think it's a little too deeply cut for an "S" shield. Overall, it's very nicely made, and about 1/16" in thickness. It doesn't look like a one off, but who knows? I see Ritmo Sereno doing some S/RS shaped custom fairings. Perhaps this was an earlier model? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Don't know anything about this fairing, just shot this picture at the 2012 Hansen Dam ride because I thought it was cool.

    This is a Rabid Transit, by Don Vesco:

    It was on my Dad's old R90S:

    I now have that old bike and am in the process of restoring it:

    Not going to use the old fairing - sold it to a fellow inmate for HUGE $$$:
    [​IMG]

    Actually, I think the cost for the shipping was more than the price for the fairing. Bracket, lowers, it was all in fair condition. Gone now to a new home. I think the new owner is going to put it on a Norton 750 Commando:

    I bot this off a fellow in Oregon and he said it fit a R65.. I loved the 77 100RS and just the year before I bought a new R90S... sold when I move to the island with 25 miles of road and no bridges to anywhere.
    So I dropped off the biking world for 30 years.. went sailing and got into sailboat racing.
    Anyway I picked up a tired R75/7 and decided to fix it up. One of the improvements was this fairing. It offers very good protection and is an eye catcher. There is a spider frame mount that connects to the head stock with a rod support under the tank. I was not able to fit the belly pan.. it is short by about and 1". Have to modify to fit. The headlight is the unmovable mounting point. So it now runs without the belly pod.

    These fairings are rarely seen.[​IMG]

    Recently purchased and still not fully fitted to the brackets, needs a fresh paint also, this is a Fallert sport fairing from Germany.
