Hi mate just asking is your handle bar fairing original or pattern .The reason I ask is I have a norbo paternities fairing and having probs getting it to fit nice around the headlight. The main problem is the pivot bracket on the bottom,the only way I can get it anywhere near is to put the bracket on the outside of the fairing, and I can see from your pics yours is on the inside thanks Michael
Hi The nose cone is one of Norbo’s fibreglass ones with his stainless fitting kits. Took a little bit of fettling to get the fit right but it wasn’t too much effort. It is always the same with aftermarket parts though so a little effort is usually in order. I also trawled through dozens of build threads to see which way the bottom bracket fitted before getting the files and Dremel out. I would suggest getting the fit right before painting 😉 John
Great thread his, thanks. Just re-read from start as inspiration for my own build. Some great points made and I will be referencing this again over the next few months during my own 31k build. I had already decided to go white/blue, and re-reading your thread has convinced me even more. Which painter did you use?
Thanks for your kind words Shaun. Same as yourself I was inspired by some of the top builds on here by the usual suspects and thought I would share by own efforts. I love the French blue scheme and took the inspiration from Mouse’s lovely hybrid. Norbo supplied the decals and a local painter did the painting for me. Unfortunately he is no longer painting as his landlord stuffed him for the rent and he cannot get another place. He has taken a job now which is a pity as I need a painter for my LC build (going for white with red speed blocks this time). When I find a decent and reasonable painter I will share with the troops.
