Could you maybe give us a little clue? I have no idea as there is no link nor photo for me to look at. Could just be my puter but I doubt it.

Dunno... When I try to quote the links show up but I did not check them for accuracy nor try to go to the site.

The pics are showing, I have no clue what type that is, you could probably make one yourself if you are handy. Looks like it just wraps around the headlight bucket, no detail of the mounting bracket though. The fella at bikescreen.com would probably know what it is if you could send him that pic, he wouldn't be able to supply the mounting bracket, just the plastic.

Your search - [IMG]http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc513/gijoe13844/IMG957815_zps7a87343d.jpg ... - did not match any documents.

Copied the links from the quoted post and this is my result. Not sure why at all.

Hi Brak,
do a search on Google for motorcycle windshields. I bet there are a dozen models very similar to that available. Years ago Meier (sp) had a fibreglass headlight surround with a small windshield which looked nice on XS Specials.

Phil
I've been searching for a while, and found a few that were similar, but not the same...

Taste is purely subjective, but...
To me, windshields on bikes are like 4 doors on a car...
I understand why people would want them, convenience and function, but i can't stand the way they look.

That being said, the fact that this one hit me right in the feels, made my heart skip a beat... well... That's a big deal

Deep down, i was hoping someone would recognize the bike, albeit a long shot...
