Where To Get Headlight/Front Fairing Frame
« on: 17 November 2020, 09:56:16 AM »
Back early this year my Boxeye rather inexcusably fell over outside a petrol station.


After lovingly restoring her with the help of some of you guys all has been well until....


My mate says to me, why is your front fairing lop sided.  I though he was having a laugh at first but no, it's higher on one side than the other.  Having just stripped it all down thinking I'd not lined it up correctly I can now see the issue.
The headlight/fairing frame is bent.  Where it comes from the stock it has two arms, the top one veers off to one side so it's out of alignment.  The fits with the side it fell on. 
I've tried persuading it with a lump hammer but it's quite tough metal. 


So...anybody have one spare of know where I can get one.  Found one on flea bay but not brilliantly priced and it's as scabby as hell so it'll need powder coating. 
I think I'm right in saying the Foxeye one is different so I'm limited in the years of bikes I can source one from.


Any help would be appreciated.

instead of a lump hammer, put it in a good vice and use a crowbar to bend it back the other way

You are correct in your thinking.

Then clean all the rusty spots with a wire brush and sparay some hammerite smooth-rite on said spots. Or do a proper job and get the frame sand blasted and spray the whole thing in smooth-rite.

After thinking more I'm going to strip it down again and this time remove it.  Hopefully it'll straighten as suggested with a vice and crowbar.  After all it bent one way so it'll surely go back the other way.
