Fair enough - thanks for the info - I like the shape is all. I might just make one out of GRP instead of going all the trouble. I can make it whatever shape I want then. You might take a look at the various fiberglass parts that this outfit provides: some real good looking fairings and seats, they have a fbg tank but no picture of it.... http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/vintage/bmwboxer.htm Haven't bought anything of theirs yet, but the website is fun to poke around in! Take a look at Ducati fairings, Rennsport fairings for vintage bikes, etc etc.
