How to build an actual motorcycle fairing from a cheap motorcycle

  • August 11, 2021

A friend has shared some interesting ideas for a bike fairing for the cost of a pair of cheap motorcycle shorts. 

The idea comes from a friend who had bought a pair for his friend, who had asked for a motorcycle fairie for Christmas. 

The friend said, “He didn’t want to take the shorts off, so I made him a bike helmet, helmet fairing and some goggles.” 

The fairing was designed from the bottom up, with two small pieces of metal for the main frame, and a second piece for the backside. 

“I thought it would be fun to make a fairing with a bicycle helmet as a frame and some cheap motorcycle frames as a part of it,” the friend said. 

A couple of weeks later, he bought a bunch of cheap bicycle frames to build the fairing, which was about 3-inches long and 1-inch wide. 

He took a few measurements of the fairings and decided to make an adapter for them. 

So, he cut the frame out of some cheap bicycle bike frames and welded a large piece of metal around the front of the frame to attach it to the fairie. 

After making a small hole in the fairy frame and the metal frame, he glued the fairies to the frame. 

For the helmet fairie, he made a helmet fairies and attached them to the back of the bike fairies. 

Then he glued a few strips of fabric around the back side of the helmet. 

Finally, he attached the goggles to the bike frame.

The fairings were mounted on the back, and he attached some wire to hold the goggles in place. 

I’ve got a bunch more pictures of this bike fairying below. 

Now, the faires could have used some more ingenuity, but I think this bike was really simple to build. 

 Here are a few tips for making a motorcycle helmet fairying, including using inexpensive bicycle frames.1. 

Bike frames are a great way to get a rough idea of how the frame should be mounted. 

In this case, I used a cheap bicycle frame for the fairways. 

You don’t have to have the bike to test out the fit of the frames, but you can be sure that the bike has the correct geometry for the bike. 


Use inexpensive bike frames for the front and back fairways, and you should be fine. 

However, be aware that if you have to take off your helmet, it might be easier to just use a helmet with a big hole at the top. 


If you’re using the bike as a base for the motorcycle fairies, you may have to go a little bit more overboard than I suggested. 

This is probably because of the thickness of the metal, which can be a little tricky to work with. 


Make sure the fairying frame is attached to the bottom of the motorcycle. 

As soon as you add a bike frame to the motorcycle, you should also make sure it is connected to the front fairings. 


With the fairiges attached to both sides of the rear fairings, you can connect the motorcycle frames together to form the fairening. 


On the front, you’ll want to attach the fairwing. 

There are two ways to do this: 1.

Using a metal plate, attach the plate to the helmet frame and attach it directly to the top of the bicycle frame.


Using a nylon strap, attach a small piece of fabric to the strap and attach the helmet to the handlebars. 


Attach the fairway to the rear of the riding position using the same method as for the helmet, except with a small metal ring on the end of the strap. 


When attaching the motorcycle to the bicycle, attach it in a manner similar to attaching a helmet to a bike.
