1970s Fairings


Fairings of the 70's (not only for Airheads)


Last updated: January 15, 2017

You are invited to submit pictures of fairings at any time, known or inknown models. Maybe over time, this website develops to become a trading place, you never know ...

Here is some important good-to-know kind of trivia:

The facts are a little confusing to most people as many of the names have been used universally over the years. Dunstall, Rickman, Avon, Read-Titan, etc. are all names commonly used to describe Cafe fairings.

Paul Dunstall had his fiberglass products manufactured by Reg Curley.

Read Titan was a U.K. based motorcycle performance shop whose fairings were provided by Churchgate Mouldings.

Avon was a brand name used by Mitchenall Bros. Mouldings. Avon bodywork was used by the Rickman Bros. for their roadrace and motocross kits as well as through a variety of other stockists. Avon fairings were also available as factory options through Triumph and BSA dealers.

The Read Titan (Churchgate) and Rickman/Avon (Mitchenall) nosecone fairings are very similar, but have subtle differences. Being from different manufacturers, the windscreens and nosecones will not interchange.
