Anyone want to start building with XB 600 parts?
As you can tell these are very slick aerodynamics. How fast would it make an XB 600? How far might it go at full speed with such little wind resistance?
Many of us know that wind resistance becomes more important once you hit 30 mph.
This is what is called a dustbin fairing. These were outlawed for racing in the 1950's. They were so fast, they were somewhat dangerous. The British, who were behind in this area but controlled motorcycle racing didn't want the Germans and Italians gaining an edge, so they created rules saying that axels must be exposed. We have been in that mindset ever since.
Just as important as the smooth front end, are the clean lines in the back.
I would laugh if a XB 600 could hit 50 mph with these fairings.
