    Bought this today - a NOS Liberator fairing.

    The plan is to fit it to the Rocket III Trike that my wife, Sonia rides

    My oldest son has a Rocket III touring. He wants to mount a handlebar fairing to it. I would like to put on a Liberator even though I will have to make the mounts and slightly modify the inside of the fairing to fit the huge tank on the Rocket. He is sort of un-decided as of now. He has never had a handlebar of frame mounted fairing, just windshields. I don't think he realizes the difference in ride quality and handling.

    Is that just dirt and dust or was it used and not NOS?

    Clean that jewel up and takes some pics, then show and we will admire! Don't forget to tell the story. How cool John, congratulations on a great find.

    I called them and asked what they were asking for it. I also disputed the claim that it was a "Harley Clone" as most Harley touring bikes are actually GoldWing Clones. Dude on the other end of the phone just laughed... Oh yeah, $3500.00

    That one's been sitting at Sport Wheel for at least 2 years that I know of. Seen it up close and it doesn't look to bad.
