Question ..I have done a search on the forum and I have looked on the Web but cannot seem to find information on "Engine Guards" or "Highway Bars" for the SilverWing...Question

Is there such a thing ? I have never seen one on a bike in any picture I have ever seen .

This is a concern to me. They have saved paint, dents and physical damage to legs with the other bikes I have.

Do these exist in a custom made world maybe ?

Thanks for your responses and your tolerance of a question that has probably been asked hundreds of times.....

The only production product of this type is the fehling rails.
You can find them here:

The Fehling's stuff leans towards decoration rather than protection although it will afford some.
Be warned, though, it's expensive for what it is; the quality of the chroming has suffered in recent years and it has a tendancy to rust at the joints where tubing meets mounting-lugs.
I 'cured' that with my second lot by smearing Vaseline (petroleum jelly) over the welds.

It does fit properly - inevitably it'll need a little easing but it's long bits of narrow tube after all.

A friend of mine in the UK had all his rechromed recently (along with practically all the rest of his Burger - not for nothing is he called Barry Bling) and it looks the business now so don't be put off, just be aware.

We have addressed this many times and in several ways. Because the SW frame is hidden beneath the tupperware they are difficult to fit. Two sections of the faring on each side would need to be cut to expose the frame for this type of accessory, but if someone were to figure how this could be done lots of folks would be very pleased.

One of our greatest contributors is Dan, and most of us use his bike as a reference. He has invested a huge amount of research and dollars into his Silverwing...and it shows!
