Windscreen

Hey I'm looking for an inexpensive functional clip on windscreen.
Any suggestions? NO more than say $150.

Eli - what do you mean by "clip on"? Do you mean a quick-release windscreen?

Yeah sorry I meant quick release. But come to think of it, I don't really care if it is...

First one I picked up was a Sportster windshield...was from a buddy, but cost me only $35 with hardware...plan on double used...the Sprtster ones fit nice with a slight trim, and then ya gotta shim the bar mounts from 1" to 7/8...I used some old garden hose.
I can check my buddy's shop if ya want, he gets new/used stuff in all the time...
There's a BIG swap meet in PA this weekend...Harrisburgh I think...you aint that far...

...here it is... http://www.cyclefish.com/event/14988/

Hey Wolfie! That'd be cool but I don't think I can make it anywhere this weekend. Someone close by has a sportster windscreen I may try to fit. Maybe some day I can take a ride up to your friends shop...

Sure....feel free to visit....he's always hittin swap meets and such, and when he does custom work, many of his customers just leave their stock parts there. So just to get rid of em, he sells em cheap....

Yeah that sounds awesome. Do you now of any crashbars that fit the Vn 750 but aren't specifically for it?

I think there are a few aftermarket ones made....thought there was a set for sale in the Sell/Swap section....try doing a search....
But really, with a 4" angle grinder and a $125 welder, you can make almost anything "work'...I have so many "non VN750" parts on my bike now it aint funny, lol...it aint a VN700 any more, lol.

I'm using a mini police windshield right now. Works well for the price.
They come clear or lightly tinted:
