Anyone With a National Cycle PlexiFairing 3?

Hey All-

Found a used Plexifairing 3 for a $100.00 bucks nearby me :-)

Pretty stoked about it..

But... I need to get it tonight and mount it in time for my trip tomorrow to Richmond, Va... So if someone doesn't mind.. can you take a picture of how its mounted on your bike?

Don't have time to be missing parts.. So I want to make sure I have everything when I pick it up.

Thanks

Jay

I have been looking for a 2 or a 3 and not sure which I would prefer. Let me know your opinion of the 3 after you have it mounted and ride it a bit. I believe the only real difference between the two is the addition of lowers. I wish I could send a picture to help you but you are ahead of me right now. Good luck and I will be waiting to hear what you think.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

a little late to the party, but yes the mounts in the photos provided by Denny are the same hardware I have on my PS2.
The clamps are just stainless hose clamps that go on the fork tubes, but the black plastic block pieces are the ones that are hard to find.

You will most likely have to shorten the windshield if it has not been cut already.
I love mine!

Got the windshield.. Its in great shape.. No Complaints..

The... only issue is I think the clamps are for a 1 inch handlebar and we have a 3/4 inch correct? I am pretty sure thats right..

So I gotta find replacement 3/4 inch clamps.. Or mod these clamps with rubber on each side to make them fit tight around my handle bar..

Thoughts all?

Thanks!

Use the rubber to shim them out until they are tight enough to stay where you want , thin rubber or plastic tubing works well or a piece of garden hose cut to length and split to slip over the bars.

After you get it in place and tightened down, take an artist brush and black paint and touch up your plastic or hose so it will blend in with the clamp.If you don't have a small paint brush ,steal one of your ol' lady's nail polish bottles.They have a fine touch up brush in them,but if you get caught, I know nothing.

.. Thats exactly what I was thinking.. Actually I have a cut up innertube in the garage that might just be perfect.. Thanks for the advice again.

Ride Safe :-)
