Mounting a HD style Batwing to your V2K Classic

I bought a generic primered Road King batwing fairing on ebay for this project. Cost was about $275 shipped to my door. You could go with a damaged HD fairing if you know how to do the bodywork. Either way you will need to be able to do the basic prep work your self or spend the money for a shop to do it.

Mounts:

I used a National Cycle Chrome Mount Kit for Heavy Duty Windshields (KIT-JK) for the basic mount.

I decided I wanted a little stronger plate and a place to mount my chrome lowers. I made a curved aluminum plate that matched the inner curve of the fairing while sitting flush against the NC mount and fork tube.

I cut down the spacers slightly to match the new dimensions with the chrome lowers. I used the black metal plate that came with the NC mount on the inside of the fairing for additional support.

1. Left side of fairing mount. To the right of the power port you can see the aluminum plate we made. This bolts to the National Cycle windshield mount for the Classic. I added extra holes to allow mounting the lowers. The aluminum plate is flat on the rear edge and rounded to match the fairing on the front edge.

2. The spacers from the NC windshield mount were used and the bolts run through them, throught the fiberglass fairing and are secured using the black backing plate from the NC mount.

4. The front with the wiring hanging loose. Silver box is a waterproof 800 watt 4 channel amp from motorcycletunes.com. The black box is an Eastern Beaver water resistant fuse block. Foam speaker backing helps a little with bass loss.

5. I used adhesive door weather stripping under the front edge of the fairing to keep the fiberglass off the chrome and eliminate rattles. Still nice and tight to the headlight.

6. Right side mount with pwer connector for the fairing.

8. This is a custom made stand alone luggage rack I had made. I will be polishing it this winter and then have it powder coated with clear. The lower part was cut on a water jet at a friend's machine shop. Awesome machine!

9. The top of the rack is actually a 50's Boy rack from an HD Deluxe that I caught on ebay for cheap. It was new in the package and I still have the billet stand off mounts and tiny little passenger rest.
