It might look less out of place with matching paint, but if it takes some wind off of you, I say keep it

I think it should go pretty good with the matching paint ...

Right now I'm not a fan. Looks like you stole a sport bike fairing.

Maybe matching paint would help but right now it sticks out badly, IMO.

But it's your bike and if you like it and it works keep it. I'm sure painting will help.

Get it sprayed and post better pics.

I'm guessing this is an 8Ball Vegas since you don't have the model or year listed in your sig.

My two cents is it will look a lot better painted to match since the entire bike is one color, er, shade. Black isn't really a color; it's a shade.

I would use the old adage about putting lipstick on a pig but the bike is NOT a pig.

Two different worlds of motorcycles clashing on one bike is what I see BUT; you are the one who counts. If you like it then that's all that matters. Who cares what anyone else thinks. Who knows; you might start a whole new trend.

My opinion and 2 bucks will get you a cuppa at the local Denny's so take it for what you paid for it.

very well put... The fairing is an old school Tracy fairing i cut up a bit.. I like that "bullet " look. But don't want to drop the $ on it.. So i want to try this out? I just don't trust my eyes, I want to get the option of others.. Also don't want to disrespect the bike.. And get a little wind off of me on those cold spring and fall rides...

This sloped back small fairing style for cruisers is getting more popular as time goes on. I think when you paint it you will like it better. Please post a couple pics so we too can see it that way.



I ran one of these little guys, still have it, on a Softail about 8 years ago and it was surprising how much wind it blocked for a fifty something dollar quick release shield.
