Would this by chance be the bike that you might have been seen riding on the silver screen last night?

RAT fairing

Did you neuter a Polaris or an Arctic Cat? You need that headlamp though!

I found a Vetter with the windshield cracked at the bottom (enough usable area for what I wanted to do), but the motorcycle yard wants 50.00 and I couldn't do it yet. Found a sealed 12V cycle battery there though that was a great deal. They sell KYMCO and used cycles, and KYMCOs are certain one of the nicest degrees of PHAT outside of a Harley lot, to stray OT slightly.

I ditched the engine because it was ridiculous and unnecessarily fast.





I ground the frame clean, welded what holes I didnt need, and began painting.







Now I wanted to chop the frame and do some fun stuff but I just can't decide what to do, so for now it will wait and be my weekend cruiser to the pool and store.

The bike in the background is very similar to the F1. It's the same bike without the fairing. Since I was building my own fairings, I choose to buy the one without the fairing.
I regret the decision, as the F1 also came with a 62 tooth chainring, which is impossible to find anywhere.

Sorry about the late reply.

The three bikes that preceded the Type 4:

Type 1 was 12 speed bike with an aluminum nose cone:


Type 2 was the Type 1 with a "dustbin" over the front wheel:


Type 3 was a fiberglass copy of the Type 2:

Do you still have the aluminium nose cone? That looks rather spectacular.

Too bad, that one looked pretty cool...but I would imagine the aluminium was a bit heavier than the fibreglass.
