Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I bought the bike set up this way. I know the previous owner did the work, including paint and bracket fabrication, himself. I will try to contact him and get the particulars.

Great, thanks, I ride most of the year and having a fairing would be most helpful

I just connected with the previous owner and he had an interesting story about the fairing. This gentleman (as a hobby) restores vintage Indians, BSAs, Triumphs, and Nortons. He also owns and rides BMWs and over the years he has owned and ridden every Harley model. When the V-Rod came out in the early 2000s he became an immediate fan and has owned 4 of them. He bought 3 of these fairings almost 14 years ago from a motorcycle shop in Danville, VA. because he liked them so much and just held onto them. Unfortunately, he does not remember the manufacturer because it was so long ago and the shop is now out of business. Over the years he ended up mounting these fairings on the last 3 V-Rods that he owned. This was the last of the 3 fairings and he fabricates his own mounting hardware and does all the paint work himelf. He is lucky in that he is able to buy his Harleys at auctions, fixes them up the way he likes them, drives them for a season, and then sells them for what he has in them to friends and friends of friends (which is how I found the bike). The fairing is mounted to the forks and handle bars. He feels that it provides greater stability a higher speeds as opposed to frame mounting with steering moving independently behind the fairing. I've had the bike up to 120mph and it was rock solid. My beast was still pulling but I ran out of straight road. ;-) I've included some additional close-up pics of the mounting and the bike and hope it gives you some ideas on how to accomplish something similar. All of the major add-ons to this bike are HD except for the fairing.
BTW, love your saddle bags! I'm just getting ready to pull the trigger but unfortunately I don't think those will work on my Night Rod because of the stock exhaust. I'm looking at some simple cost effective throw over options and possibly the Harley Sport Nylon bags that are detachable but the price makes me want to puke. Best regards!

thanks for the drooling...that is some piece of art. The idea has been in mind for some time but I'm not sure how to go about achieving this feat. The photo that your mentioning, isn't one of mine it's another dab of things to come.

Gotcha. That beauty belongs to knightenforcer.
Good luck with adding a fairing. I was lucky to find my bike as I do not have the talent to create something like that. I'm a novice wrench but good at the maintenance basics. Basically, I'm into the simple joy of riding.

Nice. Have you had any issues with instability at high speed, with access to the autobahn and all?

No instabilstes until about 100mls/h, but it seems, at more than this, it strongly depends on the winds. Sometimes I can go more than 120/130mls/h for kilometers, but sometimes instabilities occur below these speeds.
Thanks for your interest!

Sometimes I can go with 120/130mls/h for several miles, but sometimes instabilities occur at these speeds.
