Which universal windshield for my Retro???

Post by NL7U » Sat Mar 10, 2018 3:57 pm

Help! I would like to purchase The correct windshield the first time. I prefer a see-through plastic one that has some hand protection. Your pictures would be appreciated. Thank you.

Lwcollman: I really like the looks of that black handlebar fairing and the pinstripes. Can you pass along the brand and model if you still have the info? Love my Retro so far. Thanks.

I'm using the Plexistar 2, and recently added a laminar lip. Provides decent protection including hands combined with the leg guards. I little jiggly and not as much protection as the Ural windscreen, but they're minor nit picks.

Tried to pm you but would not let me. The Flanders fairing is a collector item. Not many out there that is any good. But there is a lot of Wixom fairing still around. I have one that a body shop fixed and painted black. Not pinstriped yet. But they look just like the Flanders. Send email to lwcollmann@gmail.com and I will send you pic.

Good, I don't have to post pics, I too use a Plexistar on 2 of my rigs and the longer Plexifairing on the other. Some say they are ugly, but how can something clear be ugly? Keeps the bugs off and most of the wind and wet stuff at bay.
