    Completely agree in regards to the wing. To me it just looks silly. Reminds me of people who put the downforce micro wings on the rear window wiper.

    Ha. I scanned the article for any relevant info, and there was none. I’m quite bitter at EXIF as when I offered up my builds and info, they told me “We do not print black background images. Reshoot everything on a white background.” They’ve run so many on black backgrounds, I’ve lost count.
    So 1700cc with carbs is a Rad Guzzi project (you’ll never see a dyno graph), Bellagio frame, stock V7 tank, V7 seat and Triumph fairing with those silly hammerhead winglets. The closing picture was embarrassing...

    It looks like the Winglets can be removed with a couple of screws ...

    Otherwise it looks quite good !

    I do like the look of it, but why would I shell out so much bread for a parts bin special?
    They're sleeping on your builds Todd

    The winglets also look like they are installed with their profile providing lift rather than downforce.....

    That brown lump of a seat ruins everything. Oh, and my G-5 (and the Convert) had winglets.....
    Definitely not in the GTM league. Sorry

    They can be fun for short rides in the twisties. But yeah, other than that, no thanks, at least for me.
