This fairing is going to kick so much butt!!!  I can't waiting to see the final shape.  Quite a few years ago, I drew up a similar idea.  If I could have found the vintage Triumph engines I wanted to use, I may have started down that path as well...

A bit like this you mean.

For those that do not follow Max on the Face Page, this will be a Partial Streamlined bike.  As per the SCTA rulebook, the body work will have cutouts for the rider to be seen.  So, take the scooter that Robin UK posted, and make a rider silhouette cutout in the body.

Well Max had the hammer and nails out when I got there... he may be taking up woodworking.... or opening a honky tonk...  about a 1/4 inch of sawdust on the floor  :roll:
Bike fairing concept is starting to take shape...

Life is an abrasive. Whether you get ground away or polished to a shine depends on what you are made of.

Looking Good!  Is that a buck for aluminum, or are you using urethane or polystyrene foam for a fiberglass plug?
It reminds me of our High mileage bike shell we made in the 70's






Test run at El Mirage
We did have some bulges for the steering that you may not need.


This shows the NACA Duct that we used for cooling air.  The air was run into a shroud that was formed over the motor, it worked pretty well, don't know if you could do it with those motors, very complicated forms for sure.  This photo shows the connection to the shroud, not very clear maybe, hope this helps in your work!


Best luck,
Matt Guzzetta

I remember that bike in front of the grandstand at Daytona.

Everything was exposed.

Well speaking of framing... Max the carpenter has been hard at work making sawdust...

and now he is ready to take the buck off of the bike so he can get to work on both.  So Ross Powers (MC2032 here and record holder at Bonneville) joined me to get it pulled apart.

So we pulled out all the bolts and a few nails that strayed across the dividing line between the pieces.... under the strict supervision of you know who  :roll:
