One thing I will say is the fairing and shield is pretty far forward.Maybe that is by design, your work so far looks awsome by the way, but all the bikes I have seen with shield and fairings further out front have buffeting issues.
Typically, the closer the shield is to the rider the more effective, otherwise the air crashes around the fairing and into the rider instead of around him.
Your design and styling is perfect, but what I would do is set up my handlebars and barkbusters exactly how high and forward I wanted them, and then move your complete fairing assembly as far in as possible without interfering with the handlebars while swinging them from lock to lock.
I think then you will have a perfect blend of form and function.
You have some serious talent, maybe you will end up offering these for sale ??
Yeah the set up is kind of forward, because I have got a lot of stuff up there : dual lights with HID ( not the slim ballast boxes), speedometer relocated in a fixed position, and I am planning to install later magnifying lenses vertically to each other ( KTM style ).And also thinking about to install a large screen gps ( as a secondary next to the gps map 76 ) in the protection of the windshield.
If it turns out to be nice, I may offer them for sale in a limited #.
Sweet work! Where in Fl are you located, would love to see it in person.
Finally I was able to take it off the bike and put it on a stand.
It is pretty much ready for making the molds ( there will be 3 molds ) [/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
Cool beans, a few other inmates in the area. Check out the Sandbox section when you get mobile, show off your project.
The mold for the windshield is done.
The RH side is done also
Since the bike main colors are white, black and red ( there are parts still needs to be painted ) the red and black Carbon- Kevlar cloth will be a perfect choice for the hand guards, fender, skid-plate projects.
