If anyone has good condition fairings (all of them I'm afraid) I'm looking to restore mine back to its former glory...I already have slightly damaged and cracked ones so an really just interest in good nick examples.

Specifically for the Urban Tiger orange and beige version CBR Fireblade only please like in the picture below...

I also need a screen bracket and front/top fairing holder

Ta very...:pray:

The Urban Tiger panels are as rare as rocking horse poop...
When I dropped my 125 on the blade last year I put out a search on one of those free find a breaker sites and this firm in Norfolk, I think, got back to me.. The panels they did were brand new, painted exactly as you want.. only thing is they're not cheap.. the quote was £160 for one of the mid section panels..
I'll try to dig the name out if you're interested..

Hi Loopy,

Yes I realise I'd have more chance of finding life on mars - but one has to look anyway...You can buy the original Honda parts from various suppliers but I just don't have the cash...But there were over 5000 of the urban tigers sold in the UK so there must be some, somewhere, in someone's garage.

I am the Frodo of fireblades and my quest continues...please pread the word across your Shire.

The only thing I can suggest is to go to one of the free breaker request sites and put out your request for ones in good nick.... It may take you sometime to find all the bits you need as they may be scatterd round the country, but you will get there in the end...
Keep an eye on ebay as well, they sometimes come up on there as well, although they can be expensive..
