This just came up on the local Craigslist (being sold as a Silver Wing, btw) - anyone know what kind of fairing this is? I kinda like it.

I worry that the cylinders might cook your knees on a hot day! Definitely wouldn't work on a Guzzi.

I like that, too. Good find!
Most of the pics I've seen of that style were in Europe, so maybe an import?

Looks a little like the Pichler or Hannigan.

But a little research seems to point to the Vesco Rabid Transit fairing:

Good call. Have you snatched it up, yet?

Ha! I'd have to buy the bike to get the fairing...

Here's the listing if anyone is interested... (I like the flat handlebars... those wouldn't work with my Vetter fairing.)

You say that like it's a bad thing. It is a Standard, after all.
His price is a little steep, though.

Cool looking bike, that front rotor looks like swiss cheese though

I hadn’t noticed the rotor, that’s a little scary but the rest looks nice. Maybe $2500?

Hi there! I actually bought this bike. I came across this post looking for information on my new bike. I am actually selling the fairing as I decided to convert the bike back to stock. Let me know if you are interested in buying it and make me an offer.

I actually have that fairing sitting in my driveway. Not the same Don fresco but literally the one in that picture. My buddy bought that bike and we took it off and put on a sleeker cafe style fairing. Still got it for same let me know if you're interested.
