The cardboard pattern will be transferred to metal or glass. The hard edges softened and not such flat planes. Then prolly a 2-3" cushion on top.

The faux tank is huge, so I want to look at a few ways to shave some mass.

Well heck man.. somehow in all my DTT travels I have missed this beast!! The GL is the million mile machine of touring world so be a friend and save a spot for a tow strap, never know when one of us Harley dudes will need a tug.

Love your metal work, kind of mid evil or viking IMO... I do think if you plan to get her? in the wind for big mile runs you might think of a second larger "wind wall" I pushed back for a long time, but now love the shark nose of the Road Glide buffeting and all lol... no chunk of glass is more stable in windy conditions.

The boxer 4 is my favorite motor just not this one... yet?

  Ha.  I'm thinking it all through.  Im'a just'a sketchin' fer now.  Trying to see how feasible or complicated, or even worthwhile all this is.  Even the front fairing isn't a given.  As an artist, a teacher and a professor, I know the only way to see how something will look is to make it.  You accomplish much more building (even if you don't use everything you build) things, then sitting around thinking about them. 

I know y'all are right about the wind wall, too.  There will be a CB750 in this garage within the next month that the fairing may end up on.

Role reversal. Fairing and seat pattern to the 750. The Retro Moto seat to the GL. The RM seat just so happens to share lines with the tank.

Nice looks like it was hammered out for it with the matching lines in the tank? please tell me you didn't make that last night... and what happened to the wind wall, back rest and highway pegs man? Grandpa comments? haha
