Default FLD Wide Open Fairing

I saw this fairing company, Wideopencustom.com at the Arizona Bike Week, Westworld Show, and spoke with the owner, Ben, about the FLD.
He sent me some pics of his design for the FLD which I have included.
Not sure if I like the fairing look, but the ones he had on other bikes at the show were pretty cool, with 4 big speakers, that sounded great.
Removable, and plug in like a battery tender, and can switch out between HD windshield and his fairing.
The were about $900 if you bought at the show.
Any comparison would be appreciated. I don't know much about these.

looks sweet..looks like a street glide from the front...would like to see a better side to see how proportional it looks to the rest of the bike...seen them on other dyna/harley's and they looked like they didn't belong like they needed to be scaled down to match the rest of the bike.

OEM harley.. originally wanted a lindby but decided on the oem HD as it was the easiest to make the ultra lowers fit to
with minimal cutting which im about to put back on as it is getting cooler in the morning here in the northeast.

MUCH nicer than the other bat wings I have seen on FLD's. This one looks like it fits perfect while the other ones look silly.

We've been working on this too and finally finished fitment about a month ago. The first parts have left the building and we couldn't be happier about how it looks.

We do recommend that you add an extended trim ring with the visor "bump". This minimizes the gap between the end of the headlight and the nose of the fairing.

The pictures below show bikes with passing lamps. While these work great, you don't need to add them as we include a turn signal relocation kit that brings your blinkers down to the lower windshield mount locations.

Have fun out there!

that's great, now its time to work on the smoothie bag fitment for the FLD also.. i think the first company that comes up with larger bags that fit stock location on our bikes will make a killing
