This is what I've found today in front of the police station in Gozo (one of Maltese islands).
A bit neglected, yet still in service

I have to say it was the most unusual creature based on xj600 I've seen with my own eyes.
It has certainly brought a smile to my face at first, which then turned to a wry one, when I realised my own ride is in the winter storage.

Notice lack of speedometer cable, yet two speedometers on the dashboard. ;)

I have no idea where this one is from, found it on interwebs.
The engine looks like it's from XJ900

I've been progressing my way this thread - there are many and varied mod and customs of the veritable XJ I knew nothing about before my Gum Tree stumble.

You might find this interesting.......

A bit staid in appearances but stunning in execution, detail and workmanship.

Another interesting cafe XJ600. Sounds like he needs some carb tuning, though. I really like the cylinders painted black.

Radare would you know what fairing that is or just likely custom?

That bike has stock XJ600N infills (as they are commonly referred) covering its coils, a custom subframe and seat, and a trimmed down stock fender. Which part are you asking about?

I think it's called a Flyscreen? The covering bit above the headlight

Oh, I got ya. If you search eBay for 'Triumph Flyscreen' or 'Triumph Windscreen', you will find some that are close.

Maybe take one like that linked, and paint it to match?

I think this particular bike, the flyscreen is homemade by molding a piece of ABS plastic over an appropriately sided tube and then shaping it by cutting and sanding.
