R60/5 - Avon fairing


The R60/5 is currently being restored. One of the major items is the full Mitchenall Bros Avon fairing fitted by the original owner Ian Taylor. The fairing has been on the bike since almost its first days in Victoria and is now very worse for wear. I picked up a new screen for the fairing in 1996/1997 but have not fitted this to the bike yet. Here are some pictures of the fairing condition. The fairing has been repaired and now needs to be fitted to the bike and some logos added.

The original speedometer needed repair and the work was carried out by Ringwood Speedos in Victoria.

The front wheel had hit a rock near Uluru (Ayers Rock) and needed to be straightened.
