I delivered my buddies VN900 this past Sunday, and the smile on his face is worth all the hours and hours of work. In the pic attached you can just see the classic Howe hard bags I've adapted to the Vulcan bag supports. Once I have them ready to paint, I'll match them to the bike and I'll paint the side bags to match the bike. I think the vintage 70's style faring works well with the cruiser style. the tail trunk style/size suits the bike, came with the backrest and top rack. In the fairing I installed a Pyle Bluetooth/MP3 radio and marine speakers, and a very effective antenna strip inside the fairing. The spots are each 50watt LED Pilot 3.25" in place of the original 4" directionals that were stock on the old Pacifico faring. So, like you proved with your project, these old fairings that can be found cheap, and can be updated to be very effective on the right style bikes. I found these ABS fairings can be repaired/modified easily with ABS solvent, ABS plastic stock, a heat gun and soldering iron, and Acetone (which actually melts/bonds ABS).
