Looks good. Now you just need to figure out how you want to support the rear of the fairing.

Deciding that next. Don't want to attach it to the crash bar I may change that out too. Either I'll support it internally or make a mount off the center crash bar attachment point.

Hellsfoundry makes a set of brackets that use the front tank bolts then to the fairing.

Looks pretty good... interested in what you plan to do for the electronics. Are you hoping to swap out the dash and throw new guages in with all the wiring or just put speakers in all the holes and run an aftermarket radio? I know there are differences between the gauge sizes from the older bikes to the rushmores. They are neither the same size nor are they compatible electronically.

I am putting an aftermarket stereo and speakers in it. I made tweeter grills to fit the gauge holes.

DId mine on my '17 Special. Not really bad, once I researched everything. I used FF inner, factory outer. Replaced my hand controls with lighted touring for radio switches. Biketronics unit for using thumb controls. Innovative wiring made me an adapter for the headlight. Hardest thing I had was not realizing that the RK still used 3 wire turn signals and had to do a little transition to accommodate the 4 wire on the RG and touring models. Blanks in the turn signal location and used Ciro3D turn signals next to headlight. Run 2 sets of DD Audio separates on Arc Audio 600.4. I kept stock headlight nacelle and had local guy trim sides to allow turn radius. Good luck with your project. Glad I am not the only crazy/stupid one out there..... Pic is one I found before doing mine. You can see the trimming on nacelle. More like what yours, in terms of bike style (pre-Rushmore). I still have not been able to figure out why I can't post pics more than once. Every time I try to attach a pic I have used before for another topic, attachment manager refuses to let me attach. Tells me I have used in a previous thread... NO SHit?? I never would have remembered.....

This is what I made for now. If I find a nacelle to trim I'll probably go with that later.

Just dummy tweeter grills I fabed up to fill the holes. I really want to get some miles on it now and fine tune everything over the winter.
