These could also fall into the category of KNOCK OFF.

Take a look at the “About Us” section at http://www.woodysfairings.com/

It is not far from reality. People have been doing this with designer clothes for years, if not decades.

Well if it turns out to be a high quality knock off I'll be happier than a pig in chit.

I read what Woody's had to say - I see where he took a shot at some " assclown " who sells on Ebay, but didn't name them. Would be nice to know who Woody's was talking about!

Somebody shot me an email on this. I can only say I was not aware of these guys when I wrote that on my web site, so I wasn't referring to them. As to whether or not it applies, I dunno so I can't say anything. Folks will have to draw their own conclusions.

Anxious to see some feedback when it arrives. If it's a decent fairing, guess I'll have to reopen my paypal account.

A few months ago, one of our VTXer's had an issue. I just looked at a hoppe and they look identical. Anyway, this vtxer had an isssue on fit and finish. Hoppe owner actually chimmed in on this board to see if it was his product. Here's the link on what the knockoff caused (issues) https://www.vtxoa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=223635

Do you know if the fairing in that thread came from the fairing manufacturer in the Ebay listing above? If not then we might be trashing a fairing we know nothing about. Aside from that it looks like the OP has one of these on the way, I think he'll let us know!

The fairing in discussion in my post was he bought it from another vtxer. Hoppe chimmed in and stated that it was apossible knock off. To pay $279 for a fairing when the industry starts at $499-699 is a sign. Read the post, you'll get a better feel of the issue. Some discussions and pictures were private between all 3, hoppe, buyer, seller. Now granted, the buyer thought he had a Hoppe, seller thought so to.

I do indeed have one on the way, it really os a win, win situation. The guy has a 14 day return policy from the time I receive the item, if it's a POS it goes back plain and simple if not bonus for me.
