Avonaire fairings

I have two Avonaire fairings (in need of restoration) and am willing, and able, to offer one free, in exchange for a set of mounting
hardware for a BMW R50 Earls Fork machine

Anybody out there who would be interested.??????

For anybody who may have read the posting I put up for the Cape to Cape Tour, well not good news, t did',t happen for a number of reasons, the main one being arthritis in my wrist made it too painfJohnul. That's life

regards

John,
As a /2 owner who has been through finding a complete Avonaire fairing, with mounting hardware, I wish you luck.
Several years ago I found three separate fairings in great shape but no mounting brackets and hardware??
I found the one in the photo very complete including the dash logo sticker and the headlight pig tail but have since sold it.

I thought the brackets couldn't be that hard to make until I saw them. These would need more skills and equipment than I have.
At least this is what they look like.

Again, good luck in your search.
Dean

I am in the process of replicating the hardware to install the Avonaire fairing.I finally found a complete fairing with hardware and have contracted with a former GM engineer that now produces very high end racing bicycle frames.
I have contracted for a prototype and four more sets. I will keep you posted about our progress.

Avonaire fairing braces

I have completed the first set of replica braces. They came back from the fabricator spot on. I am now working on fabricating the clamps, which should be done in about 2 weeks.
If anyone is interested in a set let me know.

Avonaire parts

Hi, I bought an Avonaire a while back and the guy who sold it to me said he had the clamps. He didn't. Do you have a set? Or can your fabricator still make them? I have the brackets.
Thanks
Chris

braces

I have the 5 laser cut clamps. They are flat. You will need to form them yourself. I also have the two clamps for the braces to the U shaped bracket. Those are chrome 1 inch bicycle seat clamps. I also have a copy of the original instructions for installing the fairing to your bike. The package is $ 40.00 + priority mail of $ 10.95

e-mail me at kimmsinger@yahoo.com and I will send you photos

Regards,
Kimm

I've looked everywhere - short of a Swiss repop the price
of a Mortgage Payment I've not found an early Avonaire shell.

Bret has agreed to recreate the early AVON AVONAIRE /2 fairing .

We'll need a Loaner to pull molds - plugs from so please ,
make the necessary calls to friends & known inmates .

Originals as always will hold their Value , yet here's an
instance where we'll have road going spares for
Summer Runners & Daily Drivers .

Even a little ratty isn't a problem. Many of the sample products we've used for
molding purposes have required some amount of repair/restoration.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Thanks, Bret @ GFTP
