TonyO While i don't mind the headlight shining into the eyes of oncoming cagers or lighting up the interior of the car in front it does need to light up the road. Ran out of headlight adjustment. Tried going lower on the front and ran into interference issues, so I moved the fairing back an inch while lowering. Made the brackets adjustable so I can play with settings whilst I was at it, Home Depot square bar fits neatly into Home Depot square tube! Once I have a final solution I will remake the brackets from one piece and (hopefully) better welds.

Now I need to get better foam tape around the windshield to stop the incessant squeaks.
Going to try a ceramic heater and hot air gun to shape the windshield a little better too.
Still mulling paint designs, thinking I might need to continue the tank theme onto the fairing somehow. The physical lines look like they match so I guess the paint should look like a continuation of the design.

TonyO I gave up on the paint, rattle cans don't like Florida summer. Too hot and humid!

Here it is with the shorty windshield, Home Depot lexan sheet cut with a jig saw.

TonyO Sorry, its on the cart getting painted, will post when I put it back on.

Vetters are a) damm tough and b) a finite commodity so a free one is a screaming deal. you an always sell it if you don't like it

bassace TonyO do you have front and rear vantage point pics? Got a guy around here giving away a windjammer but it looks pretty beat up

TonyO Its a Windjammer III from 1975 according to Vetter Fairings, about the same era as the basic design of the VN!
I did replace all the electrics and wiring.
Headlight was a sealed beam, that went in the trash ASAP. Now it uses the same bulb as the Vulcan, 100/80 Watts of Halogen because the aftermarket sealed beam to H4 converter and the aftermarket billion (chinese) lumen LED didn't play well together.
Vulcan turn signal/running lights are rebuilt with LED's and solid stems.
Vetter side markers are rebuilt with LED's.
I have some bluish white LED light strips I might add.

Fairing I go look at tomorrow has lowers, windshield with vents and chrome trim, came off a GL1000.

Now all i need is a dancing Hawaiian girl for the dash............

Knifemaker Nice. Yeah, an earshave be a good idea...just to move the fairing down some. There's a guy in town with an old Honda CB750 (or 500, hard to tell) with a pristine Vetter fairing color matched to the bike.
I've seen, in the past 15 years, two Vulcan 750's that had an old Vetter mounted in them. Yours makes three. Good work
