Wayne Buys from South Africa built an all-aluminum fairing motorcycle Storm without any preliminary sketches or modeling.

The process of building the motorcycle, named Storm, took about eight months. Wayne Buys, better known online as Fab Man Creations, handcrafted all the fairing elements from aluminum sheet metal. They are connected to each other with hexagonal-head screws – from a certain distance, similar to the rivets that fasten aluminum airplane panels.

Further resemblance to an airplane is provided by two massive air intakes on each side that direct air to the opposition cylinders and another one on the bottom left, in front of the rear wheel, that delivers air to the rear-mounted oil cooler. And, of course, fully bonneted wheels – just like on mid-century fighter planes. The exhaust is neatly inscribed under the engine, identifiable only by the steel plate with three holes that cool the muffler.

The instrument panel of “Storm” is a model of minimalism: a round speedometer with a small LCD and four buttons. But actually, there is also an additional display hidden under mesh inserts on a tank. At the same time, despite the evocative old-school feel, the bike is equipped with keyless ignition and remote start.
