This is the fairing for a Street Rod

A few years back I contacted Hannigan to see if they made a bracket to mount one of their fairings to a Street Rod. They said they had done one in their shop in Arkansas in 2006 but didn't save any photos of it. Since then I have often tried to imagine one of their fairings on my Street Rod. Now I don't have to imagine.



Motovrod had this on his gallery. He hasn't posted since 2009 that I can tell. I don't know if this is his bike, his former bike, a friends bike or just a photo he came across. I don't even know if he is still alive!

But, isn't that just the ideal fairing for a Street Rod?

THAT is something that I would consider. Brackets I can make if needed. Who/what is Hannigan?

I don't like it. Not knocking it, just different taste. I would like a fairing that uses the stock headlight, and has a three hump design to match the gages.

Hannigan developed his fairing design at a wind tunnel in Canada. They are popular among BMW owners, which is how I am aware of them. Some BMW owners prefer Hannigan fairings to BMW's. The one's I have seen are well made. There are storage pockets inside too. Their assembled fairings weigh about 15 pounds.

I was worried about that too, but if you look at the photo, it is no wider than the switch pods on our bikes. The have wind deflectors for your hands too. Everyone I have talked to with one likes them.

You know what, I would go with a Bosch or Hella H-4 Z-beam headlight and a 100/55 watt bulb. That is what I use on BMW's and brother that thing lights up desert roads like no other headlight. They are much better than what comes stock on our bikes. It will lluminate a measured 4/10 of a mile of dark desert road nice and bright.

(And it's probably less trouble than adapting an FXRP fairing.)

I'd have to see one for real. Looks a bit overwhelming in the photo.
More of a Sport Touring unit though sport influenced, in a retro-sport way. Reminds me of late 70's cafe bikes.

FYI, I have a solution for the 'R now using the Rifle fairing. Here is a picture of the first mock-up. PM me if you are interested.

Which is what I'd prefer.

With all due respect to you for offering all the versions of this windshield for the V Rod;I personally haven't cared for them ever since Ness & the Hamsters were slapping them on FXR's way back when. Obviously others share a different opinion;that's fine by me.

Having long experience with Rifle products, they offer three other fairings besides the Roadster. I've always felt their more modern styling loaned themselves to the V-Rod line better.
One is very minimalist, the other two increasingly larger, more coverage. The two larger ones hide the headlamp behind a plexy screen and offer various drop in headlamp surrounds to fit various sized headlamps.
I've always been surprised that I've never seen anyone here try one of them.
