First post, but...
I'm trying to track down any info on the Dunstall Mk1. Most of the info I am able to find seems to point that, it was not a complete bike, but just bodywork and probably available for certain Honda models? Were these fairings ever reproduced or just the genuine Dunstall articles in existance? Thanks for any help on this.
Boy this is a can of worms coming down the pike, espically since you don;t give a lot of info in your question. Dunstall built bikes and also bodywork. Mk. 1 can refer to either. Dunstall's primary early work was with nortons converting dominators into domi-racers and then later commandos into big bore monsters. Most people when they talk about dunstall are referring to nortons. Dunstall did however build triumphs, hondas, kawasakis, suzukis, and anything he was paid to build. He also did bodywork for rickman metesse frames and other racing frames. Most of the bodywork was for norton and hondas as they were the most popular. I think dunstall started using the MK I and II designations around 1972 but considering he had been building bikes since 1964 there are plenty of models preceeding it. Also Mk1 for the norton meant economy model, i.e. preformance upgrades only, where are MK1 for a honda still had the body kit as an option (I have a later dunstall 750 and it came with performance upgrades only).
if you are trying to ID a specific bike you own or one you have seen in a magazine - post a pic here and we can help identify what it is.
this is a good site to get you started:
airtech and a few other places make odds and ends like fairings and tanks and sometimes seats but nobody reporduces a complete package.
here is a dunstall style seat from classic motorcyle fiberglass:

Personally, with the exception of the tanks for the honda, and the norton stuff, most of paul dunstall's road going bikes were pretty ugly by todays standards. Dunstall was not the only speciality builder either - Rickman brothers, Tony Foale, and others were all manufacturers of cafe racer bikes and bodywork.
