Default Any Memphis Shade fairing pics?

I'm looking to put a Memphis Shades fairing on the Vegas. So far, I can't find any pictures of the fairing mounts on the bike or any good pics of the inside of the fairing. Anybody want to share?

Default Clamp and backside

You're clamps would be smaller, and there isn't much to look at on the back side of the fairing, but here ya go.
Also...when you order the "black" hardware, that only means the brackets that bolt to the fairing and to the fork clamps. The fork clamps are actually a shiny silver, and you'll have to paint them or have them powder coated if you want black.

I hate the silver. Took mine off to paint them a couple of days ago.

On 2009 vegas 8 Ball:

The "black" mounts:



As you can see, the plastic trigger lock assembly is black and the fork clamps are silver.

The inside of the fairing:

That picture is with a 9 inch clear windshield.

I've since gone to a 12" black gradient windshield, to try to reduce buffeting above 55 mph, and I can post a picture of what it looks like with that one later today if you want.

Thanks for the pics guys. They all help as my wife is the one riding the Vegas 90% of the time and she is the one that wants the fairing. In other words, I've only got one shot to get it right and make sure that she is happy with it.

I've read a couple of times about buffetting with the fairings. I ride a XR with a Vic fairing on it so I am familiar with getting knocked around a bit. Any of you that have put a fairing on changed your mind and yanked it off because of the buffetting?

There is quite a bit of adjustment with these fairings, you've got up and down, depending on where you place your fork clamps, and there is an in and out vertical adjustment on the "buttons" that attach to the clamps.
It will take a few times of adjusting but even when I had the 5" shield, I had little buffeting at highway speeds. I have recently went with a "long ride shields" brand 8" dark smoke with the flip at the top, and it's nearly buffet-less.
