    I recently purchased a Honda GoldWing. Though it had the original saddle bags and trunk, I never seen the fairing before. If you look from the front it kinda looks like an older wj, but inside it has space for a radio and speakers and 2 gauges. Anyone know what fairing it is? Looking for lowers for it!

    Kinda looks like an Arthur Fulmer. No idea if there were ever lowers for it.

    Fulmer was my thought also but the windscreen looks different.

    I don't have access to one and pics are scarce. From his description "but inside it has space for a radio and speakers and 2 gauges" it could be a Fulmer.

    Roncar, this is the one! And think there were lowers, as there is a metal L bracket sticking out where they should go! Also, mine has a (moveable) cover where the radio should go. Similar to a vetter sound system, but opening downwards and not clear plastic.

    If anyone has a brochure and can scan it?

    That setup is amazing! I really like the luggage. Spectacular! So retro... I guess at the time it wasn't intended retro. It does have that over the top design feeling. Almost gaudy.. roncar is the vessel of knowledge me and this forum are grateful for. So much to learn. :cheers

    Not sure how they thought of the saddle bags but the top case kinda reminds me of the one you could get with the Silver Wing. The one that goes onto the spot of the duo passenger.

    If wanted, I can take more detailed pictures of the fairing. Only needs a radio installed again, but everything else is in it. Speakers and 2 gauges.
    Also the side covers don't have a compartment under them, it's the way into the fairing as it's fully closed everywhere else.

    Took a while to get the pictures taken and downloaded. If you want any more, just holla and say from what angle you want them.

    Planning to make a lot of miles wth the bike. (Did like 3k miles and about 3 months already)
    Gonna try finding the correct lowers or see if I can adapt some of the original ones for a fit.
    Might give it another paint job. Looks like it was done but wrong colour or faded.

    The tophalf at least gives an incredable protection. Drobe home in rather stormy weather a coupe of weeks ago (like 8 or so) and was nearly dry when I was home. Just wet legs/socks (no high boots on) and that was due to the gap between the fairing and the cylinders. :)
