    Forgive me if I'm confusing you with another member, but don't you also have a Promaster? You even have the space to haul it!

    No, that's me alright. But the seller appears to be offering to deliver it, no less. At the very least it looks like for 3k you'd get a lifetime supply of filters and spark plugs.

    I dig the Rabid transit on that /5-6-7 bits-a, the orange rims not so much. But somebody clearly loved it at some point.

    Air - just like on a Vetter Windjammer. There's a rubber cover over the front of the nacelle. Headlight is relocated to the fairing.

    That's not a Rabid Transit. It's a Hannigan.

    Beat me to it!

    Or as my local independent MC mechanic called it, "That Bullet Train fairing."

    Hannigans look great on the right bike. Not sure the example above qualifies.

    Looks too good to be true at that price. I wonder what the story is?

    Maybe Mr. Farrer took off with his sister in law.

    Wow, that is clean with a capital C and original with a capitol O.

    Thus a CO in my estimation.

    Surely there is a R65 lover out there who'd appreciate this one.

    Thanks for posting this.
