    This faring of Arlen’s has been around for what twenty some years and its still very popular to this day. I remember when he showed up in Sturgis with one on a very cool knuckle head custom. The day I cam back from Sturgis I called Arlen and ordered one.
    Now SOA’s all have one.
    Good Going Arlen Ness

    These were always a great looking fairing from Arlen Ness.

    Yup ! The one and only original ! From the Master Hamster himself . But … aint it odd that SoA’s producers have adapted these lovely gems … albeit in Big Twin guise for all of the ‘ clubs’ bikes ?

    How’d that happen I wonder ? 😉

    The first ones were on the Sportster cafe racer. XLCR I think was the Tech name. I worked at a H.D. dealership that had a few on the show room floor that would not sell, so the dealer basically made them into standard XLCH Sportster- toss the faring, and the coffin shaped tank, weird 2-into 1 pipes, seat and rear fender,-then add the parts necessary to sell them. Other dealers did the same. Bikers picked the fairings up at Dealers used parts bend or swap meets and like Ness adapted them to their rides, this was in the 70′.

    The BMW R90S had the small fairing 3 or 4 years before the XLCR. I always considered the XLCR a bad AMF joke. A bike masquerading as something it wasn’t.

    In 1976 I bought one of those $29 quarter fairings for my 72 H2 along with a set of drag bars. Nothing new under the sun.
