Thanks immensely MikeV & Graeme,

Graeme, at this stage, all I need is a starting point and looking at your bike, I recall your frame is a replica Verlicchi & you have a Gowanloch fairing as do I. So, I think yours would also be a good starting point.
Thanks Graeme.

Cheers,
Steve

Steve, my computer is broken so I have emailed individual pictures with the bat phone.
Ring me and I will measure each bracket and you can write down the dimensions, if you need.
Keep in mind my brackets are not coppied from any TT, just what fitted for me.
Graeme

:mrgreen: Thanks Graeme!
For now the emailed images are perfect.
If I require more information I will call on you.
Thanks once again.
I'm working on the exhaust pipe for the moment as you can see below.

Also, I had checked for frame/wheel alignment and it's amazingly spot on. String, straight edges & tape measure all that is needed.
I do need to machine up a longer rear axle, the Pantah version is too short.

So, all in all a good weekend's work. Now, I'm off to buy a mig welder so I can continue with the pipe run.
Thanks again.
Steve

Well, this is as good as I can do; these are not easy to measure precisely. This is a new TT2 set from Steve Munro from the Romanelli parts. As you can see they are Italian perfection (hello Carlo); each one is "custom". So, yours need only be close. MikeV

You absolute LEGEND MikeV!
That is great work.
Like I said, it's a starting point.
So, thanks again to You & Graeme.
Right, getting back on it!

Cheers,
Steve

For me it's a great joy to hear my name, in the words of my great friends.

I'm looking at as friends of the forum, help those who need help.

I am in trouble, I would do more for you, but because of my absence, and because of my lack in English, there are times that it is better to remain silent, to avoid more serious problems.

I am here, and when I see that I can say anything I say.

I have a certainty, I am a lucky person, I have many friends who respect me.

Thanks to all. Carlo Leoncini

I respect you Carlo! You are too busy enjoying racing your bikes! I wish I could be doing this too!

I appreciate everybody's help & support in realising this dream. But, I have to do it on a budget. I still need to finish the garden!

Ciao Ciao,
Steve

Folks,
been busy...taking photos...
Armed with some dimensions to make up some fairing brackets as a starting point we have setup the following.
I have some questions after the slideshow....
Side View:

Now, for some questions:

1. Oil Level window opening in fairing: Should the window be central to the oil sight glass?
2. Should the bottom of the fairing run horizontal to ground line?
3. There is a "wing" as part of the lower fairing, does this press up against the frame cross bar along where the wiring harness bracket is attached? Maybe I need to show a photo here....
4. Does the oil filter cutout, line up with the engine oil filter?
5. Are the sides of the fairing directly vertical when attached to the rear side brackets?
6. What are some of the features that I should be mindful of?

Thanks in anticipation.

Cheers,
Steve

Hello, in my humble opinion, the fairing and windshield, has positioned too far forward, when the housing is positioned properly, the brake and clutch, turning the handlebars from side to side, almost touching the fairing.

Then you must provide the right space at the platforms of change and rear brake.

The front wheel passes too close to the basin of the lower fairing.

The posizionerei higher, the thinner parts which is associated with the plexiglass should be positioned a little higher than the tank, otherwise the motion is a line clumsy.

this is my humble opinion.

ciao.

Ciao Carlo,
I agree with you. The fairing IS too far forward. I now know why. I just have to drill holes into the instrument bracket further along to move it rearwards. This is why I'm temporarily holding it in position to see how it all goes together before I drill holes in to the fiberglass. It's close, but not quite. When I do move it rearwards, I will double check the brake & clutch levers if they touch the cutouts when at full lock.
Thanks for your information. Any more details please sig. Carlo?
Grazie mille.
Ciao,
Steve
