Nice!
The more I see one of those café fairings on a Vulcan, the more I think about getting one.

The more I see of the bobber style, the more it grows on me. Not that I would particularly want one for myself, but I can see why others like them. It is sort of a sports car style, compared to a bike you can carry something extra on.

Thanks for the kudos guys. I need to add a tank bag for my commute. The spinning tire close to your butt keeps you on your toes though.

Looks awesome.

I like the fairing. I'm thinking about some flat finish paint as well.

Krebs approves!

When I get my 750 strong I will move on to the 1500. When I get it strong for 2Up I'm going back to the 750 and doing something like this. Going to chop and bob and mangle her down in every way possible.

Thanks for the inspiration and great work!!
