Fairing Mockup

I started to try to mock up the fairing today, using some plastic sheet I had lying around. It took a few attempts to get to a shape that I think I like.... I think I actually like the contour of the trailing edge better than the stock Honda twin-headlight fairing from the Euro XLM.

Next on this project will be actually cutting it the shape from aluminum sheet and welding it up. Possibly a difficult job. We will see.



You can see here that I've got my recently un-golded and re-sealed forks back on too.
