Tail Fairing for Yoda.

Post  Panzerbuilder on Tue Mar 30 2010, 22:38

I'm predominantly a one up rider and I fancied spending some cash, so purchased a black pillion seat fairing. I was considering spraying the fairing but had an issue with matching the silver colour. Then I had one of them very rare male things. A brainwave! I ordered some silver SBP and volia, instant semi permanant colour. TBH I did nick the thundercat idea from the tattoo that Fi wants. (Thanks Fi)

Heres two photos of the fairing fitted. I'll refit the seat tomorrow and do some more piccies of the bike. Weather permiting.




Let me know what you think.
Cheers clink

A very well done job, but I'm not a fan of the cartoon Thundercat logo in connection with our bikes. Sorry, but that's MHO!

Well I finally remembered to take the camera out with me and took some photos of the seat and cowl fitted. I think it looks good. I was too old for the TC cartoon series so the silhouette stays! Laughing





Let me know what you think! BTW the bike needs a wash now, filled him up and did a quick jaunt around the east Hull villages so picked up a bit of crud. At least I've got something to do tomorrow now! naughty

Never thought of that. I'll take one off and see what it looks like, although I thought that the handles do help secure the side fairings as well.
