Mine looks about the same shape, but may be a bit bigger. It came with the bike and I have no idea who the maker is. It reminds me of the Memphis Fats shields that I have seen here previously. I just measured my shield, and would be pleased if someone could tell me how it compares with the Memphis Fats.

Width = 19"
Headlight cutout ~ 7 1/8 high X 9" wide at the bottom
Height - overall = 21"
- from top of h/l cutout to top of shield = 16 3/4"
-from top of chrome strap to top of shield = 10 1/2"
Thickness ~ 1/8" (0.118 to 0.130" at different places around the perimeter)

750Doug I have a Slipstreamer SS-28 tinted (smoke) windshield. (for sale, BTW, if anybody is interested, PM me for details)

Does a good job of blocking the wind and the little "flared" out sides offer some wind block off the hands.

These can be had in clear as well, and I think there's lowers available separately.

Fire Ant I have a Plexistar 2 on my bike, and I love it. *Enormous* difference when riding at highway speeds...
