what do you think this bullet cafe racer fairing would look like?
I wonder if it is as cool as I think it is...

Cool. You might want to paint it the same colour as the bike...???

Ibsen's machine looks cool. Iv seen one or two of these screens for sale her on E-bay UK. Even bid on one myself last year. Stylish and functional. Im not sure if id consider putting a fairing on my CB now - however their advantages are obvious. Riding my CBX 750 is a different experience altogether coz its got the screen to hide behind at both high speeds and rough weather. I have a Honda CB 250 RS - a mate of mine has one with one of these fitted - that looks good, makes the bike seem bigger to the eye somehow.

That fairing on Ebay is named a Viper café racer fairing . They do add style to the bike. And it does take away the air pressure from your chest, but it can also increase the air stream around your helmet.

Here is a picture of a Cb550 with one fitted:

The fairing I have on my 650 is a 1984 CB750SC Nighthawk fairing (CB700SC in USA).
