    Windshield fairings are supposed to reduce wind resistance by improving aerodynamics.

    Has anyone mounted one on their bike? Maybe one from a motorscooter or small motorcycle?

    I bought a cheap generic plexiglas fairing from ebay last year, just for kicks.

    Looking to install it on "The Dragon Lady"..weld

    I ran across this site some time ago. It shows how to make blown fairings for recumbent bikes. Cool stuff.
