ANSWERED Fitting a Laverda 750 SFC Fairing

Recommended Posts

That's coming together nicely. Do you plan to paint it to match the bike or to use a complementary color?

Changing the entire bike to a blue, probably similar to Subaru WRX Blue Pearl.  Might call it the Azzuro Corsa...

Azzuro Corsa - that would look good in script on the tail.  :thumbsup:

That is exactly my thinking, executing it is a bit more problematic.  Does anyone have a font that looks like the script MG uses?  I certainly can't do it by hand.

Check the fileshare section. There's a thread that has some of the tail scripts. You could give the file to graphic artist and have him or her do a custom one for you - then output as a decal. I didn't see one for Nero Corsa; that would have been convenient, because you could just replace the "Ne" with "Azzu".

Nice move, can't wait to see the end of it, i wonder what work will be necessary to put one of those on my sport naked short frame.

How does the white part of the fairing and the transparent shield goes together ? Attach system is sold with or you have to find a way ?

 

 

and by the way do anyone knows what is the brand of his exaust ? looks wonderfull

Took it for the first ride this evening.  I spent a lot more time that I anticipated getting the fairing brackets right.  I am still not completely happy with them but I will put a few hundred miles on what i have before I make new ones.   I haven't done paint yet.

 

@Jexmatex, there are no mounting provisions provided for anything.  To fit the shield to the fairing you need to match drill them.  Drilling lexan isn't hard but you need to do a slow speed.  I spent almost a minute drilling each hole just to ensure I didn't crack anything.

 

I will try to put up the pictures I have with some commentary later this week.

Good idea to ride it a while and see how everything is working - and again after your next generation brackets - and finally paint. Little changes can make a big difference to fit and finish. But I think you already know that - so I am simply curious to see what you've done so far.

 

As for pics - Yoda says "There is no try, only do."  :oldgit: (can this guy be Yoda today?)

I was digging into the forum looking for fairings to install on the V11 and I found this topic...

Following the pics of the bike I like. I believe the fairings are from a Ducati SS... somebody knows what kind of bracket he could have used for it?

 

Enjoy... :thumbsup:

That's an impressive piece of work. However, I think I still prefer the look of the Laverda fairing. The one above has the headlight sticking too far out for my taste - kind of bug-eyed.

 

Craig - have you been able to make any progress recently?

Either Agostini or, I suspect, Lavizzari exhausts on that beauty...

Fantastic work Fede78.  A couple of questions for you:

Where did you get the 900SS carbon fairing from and which model Guzzi heads did you use? I really like the old-school look of those.

 

Cheers

Paul
