Its one of those universal mount things...yours would sit lower since the pic bike has risers....if ya can get it fer under 100 with ALL hardware, might not be bad....but if its used and has scratches, ya cant tell that unless ya see it......I bought a batwing fairing fer $80, then made my own shorty windshield....I can add accessories to the inside now too....them clear ones, yer limited....all depends on what ya want....I personally think the clear look cheasy...like on KC2's bike....Id at least paint the lower end to match the bike....from the inside, btw....

I think Wolfie phrased it poorly, he meant to say they look cheesey all clear, but your's painted to match the body colour look good. Your bike inspired the plans for mine

Agree with AngryBob - Wolfie was complimenting what KC2 did with his

ummm....hate to say it, but mine is NOT painted

Here is a picture of my cheesy windshield

HERE
Is that a windshield or a sail? :D Just kidding. I bet that really makes a nice difference on long rides.

Here's my cheesy windshield. You need to age the cheese just right to get it just clear enough to use on a bike. At least with clear you can sorta see through them.



Ride safe! -Sloppy

:baby:I just don't like Memphis shades and I'm fighting to not ever put one on my Harley. I have a street shield and homemade lowers.

NEVER clean the glass with anything. Get a towel full of hot water and lay it on the glass to soften up the bug carcasses. Then wipe with the towel. I then use my portable laser wash blower (leaf blower) to dry it really fast. DO the same thing on both sides. Two years and not a scratch on the current shield.

Wolfie mispelled it:
"I personally think the clear look cheasy" it was 'classy'. The h is like right next to the 'j' and the 'k' over there and obviously slipped and added that 'e'. the 'a' is right next to the 's'. Happens all the time. Surprised yall didn't catch that

WTF means What the F*&^

In other words, explain yourself, not flip out like above....

Wolf, I think you are the one out of line here, you can have any opinion you want but singling out one persons bike is ridiculous.

As far as "EVERYBODY" doing something, what ever happened to being unique?

that's like me saying I dont like colored teddy bear stickers like on Wolfies bike

If i came out and said that you would be like "WTF" wouldn't ya?

Anyway I don't care what my bike looks like, 60K and still cranking.

Aside from cheesy there's a buttery option you might also want to consider, even comes with a bull...



Might attract some critters on your ride home though... ;)

Getting back to cheese there are any number of suitable shades of cheese for your windshield. Contact Ron, looks like he's got a good sample platter going. Maybe he could provide you with a sample swatch.




Seriously though, if we're getting bent out of shape over some cheese humor it's probably time to step away from the keyboard and get some fresh air. Life's too short. :beerchug:

Why the big reaction?

Jobs? All weekend I was living it up, saw rocky on Broadway Friday and climbed around in catamount trees on sat. Sunday made some amazing food in Brooklyn.

All Kc did was say wtf and you went off.

We are going to the chatterbox Thursday come ride.
