Hannigan Fairing Picture?

Morning gents.

Has anyone got a picture of an early production Hannigan fairing mounted on a /5 or a /6 they'd be willing to share?



tia,

That's some kind of comedy fairing right?

The /5 in the first picture looks great in that colour.

tia,
Lornce
Here's one of mine, Lornce. Are you looking for something specific or just a little inspiration? I've got more photos if you need. Hopefully this works -- first time trying to post a photo.

Thanks for your pics, gents.

Not looking for inspiriation, just need some pics to show folks what they look like.

I've got a Hannigan for sale in the flea market (for a very reasonable sum ) and don't have any pictures of the fairing on a bike.

cheers,
Lornce

No, Rob, that's some kind of remarkably aerodynamic, weather protecting, mile eater of a fairing.

Every BMW I ever mounted a Hannigan on showed in increase in fuel ecconomy (5-10% consistently) and top speed (5-8mph indicated).

These fairings work.

I'm sure they work wonderfully but having never come across them anywhere other than this site they are quite a shock. We just don't have sufficient space over here for huge fairings to be popular. The only ones I remember from the 70's were Rickman but they were few and far between.

Although I am a pretty anti-fairing dude, in their defense, those fairings do look a lot better in person.

"Horses for courses", as they say.

Just one three day, 4000km ride in the spring or fall will teach you to appreciate good wind and weather protection.

You also have to remember that the Hannigan came out in an era of very ugly and inefficient fairings and was a stand out for style and performance.

Anything more than 120 miles in almost any direction and we drop into the sea

I heard you never ride more than 50 miles without dropping into a pub.
