FB Avon Fairing for sale

Post  FB vincent on Fri Apr 27, 2018 9:16 am

I have an original Avon FB handlebar fairing for sale, part No. 6415. This was sold as an accessory by FB and has the 'FB exclusive bulkhead' which protects the back of the 5 3/4" Lucas or Wipac headlamp. (Note that most of the similar fairings offered for sale have the incorrect size headlamp opening with no bulkhead).

The fairing (in FB green) and perspex screen is undamaged. It has the original handlebar mountings, and will fit the later Falcon/Cruiser range of bikes.

Apart from giving weather protection, the fairing increases normal cruising road speed by 5 mph since the wind resistance is reduced.

Please PM me (including your email address) for more information. Collection only from St. Albans, Herts. Sandy Ross

Looks as though someone has modified the bottom edge where it meets the forks?

No, I purchased the fairing new from FB dealers Waters of Hatfield. However, they sold it at a reduced price since the bottom brackets were missing, so I made them. The fibreglass moulding is unmodified. Sandy

Hi Sandy,

That's amazing never seen one with that bottom shape. Certainly the ones I had in 1957 & presently are as per the Sales brochure.

Regards

Handle bar fairing

Post  piston 197 on Wed Sep 05, 2018 9:37 am

Got to hold my hand up and be honest i have jumped up and down on several of these to smash them small enough to go in the bin.
I put 2 into a local motorcycle spares auction ( HJ Pugh Ledbury) one in Green FB paint and one white with screen and brackets, back a while ago as one lot with no reserve, everything else sold, but those got no bids, the auctioneer rang me to collect them, i asked if he could either give them to somebody or put them in his skip as it was not worth the 30 mile round trip to fetch them, i never got them back, so presumably they disposed of them somehow.

I would love this fairing to put on my Cadet, but sadly with collection only the 530 mile round trip kind of rules me out Sad

Now sold to a fellow Falcon 87 owner. Just the thing for the cold days to come!
