North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2007 / fairing01

Wooden fairing on the Jai bike. Didn't quite make sense to me, but I didn't press in for more info. Looks like some sort of steering damper system with an adjustement for load weight. The box had compartment on the rider side wtih a door, and another spot on the "dashboard" behind the fairing. I find this more interesting in retrospect, and the fellow operates out of Berkeley, CA On the table behind them, there was a photo of a 50's motorcycle with a similar fairing, with the statement that it went 182 mph on 2.5 inch tires with sketchy brakes, which made me think it was some sort of speed assist fairing whle at the show.
