Have you seen this before? News to me that there was a kit to fit the 500.

dunno much about the 500.
maybe Vetter? they were very popular, though most of his had exposed headlight.

or maybe Jacwal? --> http://thekneeslider.com/vintage-jacwal ... e-fairing/

Fairing looks very much like the Yamaha Tour Deluxe kit sold for the 750/920 Viragos.

Seen a couple for sale on Ebay or CraigsList and I think they were both 500s.
It was described as Yamaha package. Not sure if it was OE or Dealer add on.

Wondered if there is too much frontal profile for a 250.

Not sure about the top box but the saddle bags look like Krauser bags.

I fitted a huge Windjammer from Vetter on my CB250 and it actually went faster.
