I have one for you, made from a mould from Alfies first Dakar bike.

I will take a pic and post it.

Thanks Anything V, Sound good :thumleft: I am looking forward for the picture of your fairing.
How much do you sell it? Fiber glass will be good, I want to have it white, but I can paint myself later on.

Thanks DoM, Yes MST is looking nice especially the full fairing... but out of budget for me :-\
Also I quite like the look of the R900RR I saw them in action on the 2000 Dakar when I was living in Niger.
The tough part will be to built the big tank...

Do you have the standard or HPN tank? Niklaus in CT who does the rally bikes has a very nice fairing he has developed that can be adapted to most bikes. Maybe worth a look at?

Here we go, I have one in stock and can have another made will take about a week. I just confirmed the price with my manufacturer. R 1 800 each.

Gel coat has a good finish  but a coat of paint would be preferable.

Thanks Dom,
I finally bought the fairing of Any V, I really like this look. ;)
I have the original tank and I will built 2 extra side tank. HPN and other bigger options are to pricey for me...
I like to travel far from any fuel stations :ricky: and I can always come back to original when playing around on week end.

I must look for the pics of a guy who made some great fibreglass HP2 tanks - think he was a Ozzie.

Hi, I would love a black one, but need to first get my priorities straight, the bike needs some new Continental TKC 80's that is going to set me back R4000.00.

Will let you know!

Dom, I will be glad to have more info and see what was done :thumleft:
I think it will be very difficult to make those 2 side tanks... I am not sure yet if I should do them in Aluminium of fibreglass ???
I will probably start a post on the HP2 side about this...it will be more appropriate
