Is My Fairing A Hondaline or Vetter?

Postby patbrandon1 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 8:42 pm



A rookie question from a rookie Goldwing owner. Can you please tell me from the supplied photo if my fairing is a Hondaline, or a Vetter? I need to replace the windshield and have found one on ebay. Just want to make sure it fits before I order it. Thanks for your time.

Thanks Virgil. I did google images, but it really wasn't answering me absolutely. I did look at a parts catalog and am pretty sure it is a Hondaline. Appreciate your time.

With the Hondline you pull the parking light assemblies both glove boxes and you can get to all the wiring inside.

MJ, is your fairing a Hondaline? I think mine is like yours. What do you think? Just want to make sure before I order a windshield. Thanks.

Having met Craig Vetter many years ago, I can assure you, if it was a Vetter fairing, you would be well aware, as the Vetter name would be in plain view from whatever angled the fairing was viewed from. If it was unaltered from stock, that is!
Quite an ego, but then, mostly justified as he did start the "fairing" age for better rider protection!

I would like to thank all of you that took the time to supply me with certainty that I have a Hondaline Fairing. It was such a rookie question that I found no posts on this site, or anywhere else on the 'net that would explain the differences. Now I can order the new windshield with confidence. :oops:
