    Yes, it is a Liberator. Mounted on my Yamaha XS1100. I saw this fairing years ago at a motorcycle salvage yard, mounted on an XS1100 and never could quite stop wanting it. It was in pretty rough shape by the time I finally decided to go get it. Was missing the lights and turn signals. One of the turn signal mounting stems had been broken off, windshield was busted. Worst of all, when the idiot at the salvage yard took it off the bike, they dropped it and cracked the shell down toward the bottom. Theit best thing about it, it was already mounted on an XS1100 so someone had already gone to the trouble to make a custom mounting bracket for it.

    I am somewhat stubborn and was determined to get it looking decent and on the bike. Some people, like me, love it. Others, not so much. LOL. I have been accused of strapping a barn door to the front of my bike. :)

    Honestly, I like the look! There are a number of things that make this fairing work on this bike. Using the XS1100 is a good pick I think. The XS11 is super thick bike with a good shape, and of course having the luggage on the back fills it out well. The part that I personally like is that the bike has this sort of Mad Max look. Blacked out exhaust, black luggage, black fairing. Looks killer! Great job!

    How could you miss the XS11 is a cool bike and the Liberator is a cool fairing. Your set up is awesome. The Dual Head lights, passing lights and turn signals lite up must be a sight at night. Did you have to do any mods to the electrical to handle it.
    The Liberator originally designed for Harley but I have seen one on a newer Triumph. Which looked good as well.
    I like it!

    Looking at these images makes me want to put a Liberator on my XS. It just makes the bike look mean and aggressive with a great stance! Love this bike. Bigfoot thanks for sharing. Post some more images of your beauty.
