Caddy Fairing continued
It took about a week
for a large box to arrive on my porch. Inside was a mold injected
polypropylene fairing, lexan windscreen, and a bag of fasteners. I
would have to come up
with some type of mounting brackets. This fairing was designed to bolt
on to a or Harley-Davidson
Softtail or Road King. To work on my Volusia, I
would have to modify it to fit.
This is how it looks
out of the box. The build quality is good. The edges need final
finishing, but that will be taken care of during painting.
I was fortunate that
Windscreen mounting bracket could be used with this fairing. I
could bolt on some custom brackets for a solid attachment setup. It
took three tries to make a set of brackets that would bring the fairing
close to the headlight.
I had to grind out
part of the front fairing. This allowed the fairing to come close to
the headlight. I found that my belt sander was the best tool for the
I cut the headlight
bracket and welded in a 3/4" spacer. This pushed the headlight forward
enough to give the correct final appearance.
