I don't suppose anybody happens to have a picture of the fairing at all do they?

There is a picture here in (Clive Tasker's?) albums:
 
Also some good shots in the Laid Back Cyclist #103 or 4?
 
Take care,
Barry ;-)

Not sure that's the one he's selling Barry - too many 'a's.

Thanks Bazz, I'll have to see if I can arrange a test fitting at Scunthorpe.

I don't suppose anybody knows if Mr Tigwell is attending at Lancaster / Preston do they? I'd rather talk in person than on the phone, poor hearing and the inability to lipread makes it all a bit of a mission.

Perhaps this fairing then? I'll double check with Dave when I next see him then.

Not enough 'a's Wink. This is the Cuckoo Raaa, but I can't recall seeing it with a tail-fairing, so you could be right Paul and the ad above is a typo? Confused

The Raaa (lowracer as pictured by Geoff) has appeared a few times with a tail fairing.  I suspect Tiggers has been having too much fun racing the likes of NeilF bare-naked to be wanting to continue using it.

Hmm, a mystery to be cleared up this weekend then. Either way if the fairing won't work with the Rapto then it's a no go. I imagine I should be able to modify it though.

I think you will find that Dave is selling the Silver Tail Fairing as shown in the picture I linked to.
 
I think he likes the Naked feeling that Adrian mentioned, even though the fairing gave an extra 3.5%  increase in speed, I guess it also increases the hassle factor travelling by train too; unless you have a third party to deliver the fairing to the races.
 
Take care,
Barry ;-)
