I wrote to the builder , asking about the front suspension/fairing clearance question.

He writes:

The front fender/fairing is attacehd so that it turns with the forks but does not move up and down with suspension movement. So - it's tall enough to accomodate full upward travel of the front wheel. The clearances between the fairing parts should not change with suspension movement. That being said, it's all a bit of a work-in-progress, and I'm keeping an eye out for skid marks inside the fairing!
