Hello all, many years ago i got hold of a german made full fairing kit for my CB1, to cut a long story short, i have only just got round to installing it & unfortunately 1 piece is missing the bracket assembly that holds the headlamp to the frame via a u-clamp, Does anybody have any information on which company manufactured them, or even a picture so i could make one? Thanks in advance Phil

I saw a cb-1 with a fairing once. Just once, and I've been hanging around them a very long time. I think it's going to be a matter of making up something which works and looks close enough.

Brush up on your Russian york149 and ask the guy who put up the Russian vid of a CB-1 with a fairing. I think it's blue, and there's snow on the ground. Good luck.

Yep, he ruined it. It seems we agree VH! Wink

But I can see the point of a full fairing on any bike in bad weather conditions. You live in SoCal. You'll never need one you lucky boy! A Geiger counter, clean water supply and factor 30 maybe Wink

York149, take a look at his earlier vid, and the before shots in this vid. He's cut the top clean off!! Crazy mofo. He may still have the bracket you need.

Well....I'll tell you a story one day bout man and his kin, moved from N.E. DC which blowed a bunch and then. Horrible place to be....then he moved to Beverly (well, not Beverly but close nuff).....

Long story my move. Someday. It was a long and arduous plight that got me here but I'm here and hopefully never leavin'.

But yes, in climates where it's sun all the time...sure keep the neked bike look. In climates that rain all the time....well, I pity those that have to spend their days there but farings would help out.

You made a good move VH. In not jealous, but the idea definitely appeals to me. I was born in North Wales. It blows there too. But I still feels like home. I've riden motorcycle and bikes there and enjoyed every minute.

One day I will ride the PCH in both directions I hope. But I refuse to fly into the USA to be offered the non choice of being irradiated or sexually assaulted by the thieving TSA. So my entry will most likely be via Canada.

yeah...don't that seem the case all the time?
Seems we both stray off topic a lot.
Hard to contain oneself on "only" motorcycle subject matter............but you are correct Aaron.

Let's get back on track.
Farings......on a CB1. Again, don't do it.

That's a narrow track. Riding the PCH and what it takes to achieve that is a motorcycling topic. Whether a fairing is needed by an individual biker is a matter of opinion best decided by that particular biker. Whether he needs the bracket that's missing from his fairing is a no brainer. Of course he needs it.

So the real question is why individual opinion should influence the amount of help he gets to find one. The principle should follow Voltaire's: Even if I disagree with your choice, I defend your right to make it.

I agree on that too.
if a rider needs to have a faring on the CB1 to operate in his environment...ok, then. His choice.
Like you said, here in SoCali.....it never rains so I can see where I wouldn't want one on mine (if I still had it in my possession that this........geez I hope my brother gets tired of the CB1 soon Wink

That's cool VH.

I've often wondered what bike I'd ride in your part of the world. I might actually ride a FatBoy chopper of the type the Essex guy built/still builds? But I have no idea why. Maybe I like the idea of an obscure tribute to Gram Parsons. Or something that could get way off the highway in the low desert, and camp where the brush is so dense the CHP choppers can't touch down. So much poetry and mythogy to play with. You see what HollyWeird has done to us over here?
