You are correct. It is a Hannigan. Still available too.

No hate to Hannigan, but those fairings are fugly as a mud fence. YMMV

There seems to be no middle ground when it comes to the Hannigan Fairings. I thought they were great looking when I saw the prototypes at Loudon about 1976, and still do. Incidentally, Hannigan based the fairings outer shape on the Kabe fairing imported by Sidecar Restorations, who became BMW Motorrad of St Louis.

Yes, a Hannigan. This was the ST model back when, and nowadays it's called the STe (ST european). The "wings" come back over the handlebars and the windscreen wraps around more. The current "ST" has more of a cutout around the bars so it doesn't need low bars. And the fairing on this bike comes with Lowers.

Good fairing. Fugly but functional (eye of the beholder, and all).

I sense i may need schooling here-- did the Hannigan pre-date the BMW RS fairing of '76 build? I assumed the RS fairing came first (the legendary Pinninfarina windtunnel devel, etc)

The lowers of that /6 the OP posted look like stock RS/RT lowers from here, that's what made me think the Hannigan was post-RS design with modded RS/RT parts

If the bike is as nice as described (incl dual plugs) I'm kinda tempted at around $2500.

Depends on how the work and routine maintenance work has been carried out, but going by the photo, the bike looks very nice.

The Hannigan lowers were based on those from the RS fairing.

...and used the design of the lowers from the BMW RT. Originally Hannigans didn't come with lowers when Dave started making them in Scarborough Ontario.
