    That is one really good looking rig. You should be proud :-) Where did you get that fairing? I wouldn't mind having one like that for my W650.

    It looks a lot like the old Pacifico fairing from the 80’s. ???

    Thanks for the kudos...it is a lot of fun to ride..
    The fairing is an H&H from Harpers moto guzzi. It was on the jackal when I bought it. I will say, its the best aftermarket faring Ive used as far as wind and noise. Not much to it but they got it right.....$640 ish if I remember correctly...
    Handlebar/fork mount, you could put it on anything.....well, almost....

    Owner said that it will cruise at 50 mph. Tug is a Suzuki TU250X similar to the one I just bought.

    Finland, they received a number of these Zundapp KS750's from Germany during the war. A number survive to this day, this one is post WWII.

    Here is a film of some Finnish soldiers training with them:

    Normally when a cruise speed is mentioned on level ground is assumed.

    No problem, I reckon a good one could be found for $45,000 US.

    The original owner of Hedingham sidecars, Keith Wash, used to have one in bits in his garage. No idea whatever happened to it.

    Nothings all that level where I live. I have a Spirit of America on a SR500. It has enough power to "cruise" at 55 anywhere but the steepest hills. The Suzuki 250 may work for you down in Floo-da , but , it will be backing up traffic everywhere in W.N.C.
