    Looks like a really nice paint job and I really like the colour.

    The headlights we're testing are slightly smaller than the Ully, but significantly better lights.:D

    Looking forward to seeing the dual headlight design.
    Here is my current setup. Simpson Detour fairing and African Queen rock guard.

    It gives great light but with my Tourcross helmet, I could use more wind protection.

    I'm thinking it might be replaced soon....:wink:

    It's tempting to show progress pics, but when something's only half done and still got filler etc all over it, it can get a bit misleading. Having said that, I think we'll be all finished by the end of the week and get some pics on here.

    I liked the original XS design. I have a feeling I'll like the new twin-headlight design even better. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this thread. :thumb

    Interesting you mention that. We had considered the possibility that the new twin headlight might suit the Husky TE 610, so we did a quick temporary fit on my TE 610 and amazingly, it looks like the bike was made for it ! (or the other way around). Looks like we only need to configuer a small subframe for the TE and it'll pretty much fit straight on. Could work well for TE owners looking to broaden the use to more of an 'adventure' role.

    Will the twin headlight fairing include headlight assembly? If so will you be able to buy w/o headlight and add your own lights? Very interested....

    OK, as promised, here are pics of the one we're testing. This is the 'model' (which is made of fibreglass, plywood, metal and filler !!) and will now be used to make the split molds in order to produce them. There are still some minor 'tweeks' to do, but largely this is it.
