Looks like a nice solution for a guy like me...


That looks alot like a KTM 640 Adventure fairing... I have one in the garage I'm not using if anyone wanted to take a swing at building a mounting kit... very reasonably priced as well!

Doesn't look like it....i got one of those fat hpn tanks being delivered. Got a couple of trips planned where distances between fuel stops is of concern.

I agree that it looks a lot like the fairing on the first generation KTM 640 Adv models. It could be a glass fibre reproduction. An example of a later 640 Adv fairing type is mounted on inmate Laurie's nice airhead. It looks like he trimmed the sides and made a mounting rack that fits on the frame. It should be possible to make some side extensions to make it more integrated with the tank.

The HP2 really fades compared to this beauty

This bike is owned and ridden by a chap called Carrodo from Turin in Italy and one of the main if not the chief organiser of the Hard alp Tour ,
I have quite a few shot taken of this bike that I will post when i get the time , Corrado makes all the parts on the bike and will sell replicas , the bike is a work in progress and it evolves with him , I have seen it ridden at close quarters and was hard for my HP2 to keep up

This a sweet bike to. Would love to see some more details on its build. Quite a few thing you can spot from the pic but there will be a lot underneath the hood that we cant see i'm betting too.
