What an interesting motorcycle. I wonder if Vetter still has an example. It was on the cover of all the bike mags back then. The Vetter fairing influenced styling is really evident. Seems to me I read a long time ago that he designed the fairings so that the rider would be catapulted over the obstical in the event of a colision.
