Corbin's new Contraband fairing offers Old School looks that blend in with the classic styling of the Thunderbird. Provides stunning, color coordinated visuals while giving you excellent wind protection so you can rack up the miles. All this combined with a convenient storage compartment perfect for your ride essentials.
Hand crafted by Corbin's R&D lead (and 20 year Corbin veteran) Vince Zavala... who else could have brought such a challenging project to such beautiful fruition?! Built into the classic lines of the fairing is seven liters of locking storage space which is plenty of room to hold bottled water, spare gloves, wallet, cell phones and other incidentals (but not parrots). This is an extremely convenient location for quick and easy access at fuel stops. Door is weather stripped to protect the contents, but this area is directly in the wind so some water intrusion may occur.
On the rider's side of the fairing you'll find an ABS dash panel that provides a clean finishing touch. In the dash is a small "glove box" type of open storage area to the right and the locking latch mechanism on the left. To open the Contraband storage compartment, simply pull the chrome plated latch and the door will pop open slightly on a spring catch. Chrome latch has a keylock built in to secure the storage area when desired. Latchpin has a double catch to assure it won't open accidentally.
For the fairing shape, we've taken an approach similar to a common touring windscreen, but upgraded the design to provide better areodynamics and a more aggressive line suitable to thebike. Notice how the shape of the fairing starts at the headlight and flows back to part the wind more gracefully. This transfers the highest pressure area rearward of the steering pin which gives much greater stability at speed (a kind of rudder effect). This shape also brings the slipstream "bubble" further back to get you out of the wind.
As the fairing is designed to slip through the wind, it creates less turbulence and buffeting which gives you a quieter and smoother ride than the standard plexi windshield. Naturally this stability and low pressure slipstream for the rider helps to relieve fatigue associated with long days on the highway. It also helps to lower wind noise which adds to the comfort value.
Constructed of our Fibertech material for a smooth clean finish and durability. Contraband fairing is then hand painted to coordinate with your stock paint scheme. Topped off with a smoked windscreen for a beautiful piece that is ready to install right out of the box. If you are a taller rider and prefer a little more wind protection, we also offer a 10" clear windscreen in place of the smaller smoked one, just select the appropriate windscreen in the space provided. Please note that taller windscreens are designed to be looked through rather than over, so they should not be smoke or dark in color. A wide variety of windscreens are availble via your local Harley-Davidson dealer, just ask to see the options available for a 1997-2006 Harley-Davidson FLHTC model fairing.
Simple to install with complete directions and all required brackets included. To assure a perfect look on your T-bird, brackets come painted to give a subtle appearance. Installation is suitable for an average weekend mechanic.
