I do love the looks of that studly engine! One thing I miss with the Concours, you can't even see the mechanical bits.

:thumbs: Sharp !!  What did you use for trim on the bottom of the fairing?  I've been thinking about going half naked  ;)


I just took some 1/8" X 1 1/2" aluminum bar stock and basically blacksmithed it into shape to replicate the curve om the bottom of the fairing. After I drilled the mounting holes I fashioned a bracket to mount the tab of the inner fairing panel since I cut it at the line of the edge of the upper fairing. I then painted it black with Rustoleum. If I had it to do over I would have tried to make 1" wide stock work (it would be a bit less massive). Here are some pics:

It starts with a "K" and ends with a "B Fork Brace" and you get it from Murph's Kits.    :D
