What fairing do I have?

Post by dustin.flower »





I have looked at thousands of pictures of wing fairings and found nothing that matches. I will post more pictures later when I get more pictures. I will be repairing this one and repainting the bike soon but it would help to know what this is for future reference. Also, would like to find a set of the windscreen side-screens. One was on it when I bought the bike but the other was broken so I removed it.

The bike is a GL1100 Std that has been converted.

I am contemplating dong a poor boy alternator kit, what are your thoughts on this. I have found the GM mini one wire alternators in a 60 amp and plan on using that. 8-) 8-)

Have never seen one with a rectangular headlamp but, it sure looks like a Pacifico to me.

I can confirm that it is a Pacifico as it has that brand next to the plug on the left inner wall. With that being said, I couldn't find pictures or information on one with a square headlamp, thus why I'm asking on here.

I'd like to find a set of the side wind screens for it. I don't know if ill ever find them but its worth looking! 8-)

Any information I can soak up about this will help me out!

Thanks All!!

Id also like to point out that I have not seen a Pacifico fairing with the air inlets next to the headlight. (One on each side)

Thats definitely a Pacifico fairing. Maybe an older style, but a Pacifico nonetheless. Try this link......https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Goldwing ... SwnYpdWF6i

As an update, After confirming that it was a Pacifico, I did some research and got in contact with Steven Fulleton. He is the owner of Pacifico Fairings Co, He confirmed that they made plenty of different models of fairing and that they made them with square headlights. They also made a conversion from the round to a square headlight. I think that he has answered my questions very well.

A quick google search for "Pacifico Fairings Co" will result in a Facebook post about selling the company. It sounds like he is having to sell all inventory and whats left of the company. If you need Pacifico fairing parts, it may be worth your time to contact him. I would post contact info here but it ended up being his personal cell phone and I feel better about it if I just tell you where to get the information.
