It looks like a Redneck engineering bike, so most parts are Buell.

The Ness fairing can fit a Custom. The picture above is a Buell Flyscreen.

The fairing on ECUtravs bike looks like a factory Buell piece. Anyone know where i can get the headlight/fairing brackets like those for cheap? Putting a Buell Blast fairing on my bike and need the brackets.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

the headlight was a little expensive but worth every dime for the difference it makes. that #1 sticker would give your bike a great "period look"
