Windshield

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to pick up an original style windshield for my early 50's Pan. I've been watching ebay and other than some old cracked ones, nothing has come up.
Can anyone recommend a someone who is selling good quality reproductions.

Thanks
Dave

Dave!

The only modern reproductions that I am aware of are National. The hardware is flimsier and the bead braces are recognizeably incorrect.

But their cellulose acetate windows are delightful.
The peaked' beaded version is available only from V-TWIN, as Tedd commissioned them.

So your money would be best spent to pick up a derelict shield with decent hardware and then outfit it with modern windows, and usually a fresh set of screws and acorns from Colony.

Good luck,

....Cotten

Wasn't National, Harley's original vendor for windshields?
