Picking up TA125 fairing on Saturday!

It will probably need modification to fit the "Ace" and bracketry will probably be tricky, but should look good when finished.

A short drive and now I have this:



As it is for a Yamaha TA125 two-stroke twin some modifications will be necessary, mainly at the bottom.  Fitting a headlight is fairly straightforward but time consuming.

Will post progress.

Fairing positioned roughly.
Some things good, some things bad.
Good things are that the current handlebars etc. fit perfectly and nothing hits lock-to-lock.  Screen allows me to tuck right down to try and pick up a little more speed.
Really the only bad thing is I will have to replace everything adjacent to the crankcase and exhaust pipe, but I expected that.

That's pretty freakin sweet man!

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Way off topic, but Daniel, you must be working the graveyard too!
