Custom Fairings for Vintage Bikes: An overview of how CMW creates custom fairings for vintage motorcycles.

Vintage motorcycles are a thing of beauty, and many riders are passionate about restoring them to their former glory. However, finding replacement parts, including fairings, can be a challenge. That's where custom fairings from CMW come in. In this article, we'll discuss how CMW creates custom fairings for vintage motorcycles.

Design Process

The first step in creating custom fairings for vintage motorcycles is the design process. At CMW, we work closely with the customer to understand their needs and preferences. We take into account the bike's design, era, and unique features to create a custom design that complements the bike's vintage aesthetic.

Once the design is finalized, we create a 3D model of the fairing using computer-aided design (CAD) software. This allows us to make any necessary adjustments and ensure that the fairing will fit the bike perfectly.

Material Selection

At CMW, we offer a range of materials for custom fairings, including fiberglass and carbon fiber. For vintage motorcycles, fiberglass is often the preferred choice as it offers a classic look that complements the bike's aesthetic.


Fiberglass is lightweight and durable, making it an excellent material for fairings. It is also easy to work with, allowing us to create custom shapes and designs that fit the bike perfectly.

Production Process

With the design and material selection finalized, we move on to the production process. We create a mold for the fairing based on the 3D model, ensuring that it is the perfect fit for the bike. The fiberglass is laid over the mold and bonded with resin to create the necessary thickness and strength.

Once the fairing is complete, we remove it from the mold and sand it down to ensure a smooth finish. We then paint the fairing using high-quality automotive paint, creating the desired look and finish.

Final Thoughts

Custom fairings for vintage motorcycles are a great way to preserve the bike's vintage aesthetic while also improving performance and functionality. At CMW, we have the expertise and experience to create custom fairings that fit vintage motorcycles perfectly. By investing in a custom fairing, riders can improve their bike's performance and stand out from the crowd with a unique and beautiful design.
