It doesn't look very sturdy to me. 4 mounts on the windshield but only two bars making only two mount points on the handle bars. What's to keep it from rolling back when your cruising at 70mph? Change the mounts to be 4 independent & you might have something. The price is right if you could fine Memphis Shades "Malibu" mounting hardware.

That's the shield I have. It seems to be very similar.

Looks like it mounts right up to the handle bar...not sure it would clear the instrument cluster/tach/speedo on the Vulcan.

The bike pictured has no tach or speedo in front of the bars.....

I have the smaller F/S windshield. The upper rods go into clamps on the handlebars. The lower brackets are screwed into the headlight bucket with barrel bolts.

Yes it is a good price but way to big. If you did buy it you would have to trim the bottom of the sheild to make it around the headlight. Mine is half that size and only mounts with two metal rods, makes it easier to take off and put back on. Had mine up to close to 100 mh and no trouble with it leaning back at me.
