Has anyone bought one of the new aluminum Speedster Windshield frames ? How did it work out? Thanks Al

Not sure what type you're referring to? Who sells them?

Lane's sells them for $79.95 each on page 181 of their catalog.

Haven't seen one up close, but I guess it'll work?
I skipped windshield altogether, I just wear motorcycle goggles and keeps my teeth together to avoid swallowing too many insects :-)

Albert,
"unpolished" means it will take a lot to get it shiny. Also, make sure to get a price from the glass company before they do it. When I last had new glass put in my monocle frame, he broke 4 before he got one right.

I bought one years ago, alum. unpolished. Is a fairly rough casting, but with file and sandpaper did get it looking OK. But painted it to cover the file and sand marks. Fit to column is fine.

Used Plexiglas instead of real safety plate, as real glass that size is heavy.

Cut the sheet plastic round on the band saw and 'flamed' smoothed using a hot flame, the outer cut edge after sanding. The flame melts the edge ever so gently to allow the plastic to go back clear. Glued the plastic into the mount.

Thanks Dan, I will do that.
