Other than a modified Harley fairing, I'm not sure.

This Fairing is a beauty but again the headlight is a problem. Take a look.

Here's a pic of the HD fairing I had and how it would have fit the Vol.



This one is one of the nicest bikes on the site.



The fairing has the inner shell with all the goodies but IMHO the head light is to far back.
Perhaps if you were to get a headlight assembly off a C50 the problem would be solved.
Hopefully someone will join in here that has some better suggestions than I.

If that is the only issue is the head light being to far back, I can have a friend in the maint. dept. fab up something to take care of that, and I am sure I can come up with something for the air gap.

This seems an easy way to mount a Harley fairing.

I have a 2002 Vol that I installed the MS Baywing on. There was a large gap around the light and it was about 2" back from the edge of the fairing. Found a pattern on this forum for a spacer plate to move the light forward about 2 1/2". Made it from 1/4 plate steel, was just perfect. There is no gap anymore and it now is flush with the fairing.

I know the pattern your speaking of and have seen it on the forum as well.
I not been able to find the thread it's in and I guess you can't either.
