Has anyone tried the CS replica fairing from Motorworks in the UK?
I'm looking at buying one (nz$230.00 landed here) as they seem a good deal, fairing, screen, dash and some mounting hardware in the package.
I'm expecting to have to buy some more mounting hardware as I'm sure there will be some bits left out and obviuously it will need painting, but I should have it on the bike (R80) for $300.
Interested in any comments as to the quality of the fairing.....

Iain

I am not a fan of fairings in general, but I do swipe pictures pretty much any time I see one.....this is definitely an "older than our airheads" fairing, but pretty cool with exhausts coming through!





PS I have no idea what it is.....

Probably would fit an assortment of 1970 era BMW's for sure but the bracket would be the key.
A Windjammer bracket may work.

LLPeteJ That's a Road Runner fairing, another knock-off of the Vetter fairing. These were made to fit /6 BMW. Yes, if I'm remembering right the Vetter mounts would work.

Nope, it's a "MKIV", which became the Luftmeister. It's a knock-off of the Windjammer and can use their bracket. The Windkutter was slightly smaller than the 'jammer.

Seems like it was called the Windstar?
