Thanks for the identification. I have no other knowledge on the bike, as it's one I'm considering buying. I was thinking the fairing might be a Windjammer.

Here's the real question: If a Double Quarter Pounder is bigger than a Big Mac, is a Big Mac bigger than a Royale wit' Cheese? That's the question I need answered.
