  • It's hell getting old.

    Shortly after I purchased my '03 new I found a guy on another forum who wanted to sell his aftermarket windshield. Prior to the purchase there was much banter about which aftermarket windshield riders had and what they found to be the plus and minus of each product. I even found someone who had one that interested me and I went to go check it out. So when I came across this guy, who had the same one I previous inspected, that wanted to sell his for $125, with a vent, 4" higher and wider on the sides I jumped at the chance. Now near 10 years later I'm thinking that if something happens to this windshield, which I love and have had compliments on regarding viewing thru it, I will be at a loss to replace it because I can't remember the name of the manufacturer of the windshield. And of course I did not write down any info on the windshield when I bought it.

    Post a picture of it, I bet someone will recognize it and you'll have your information.

        Several companies offer 2 and 4" higher models. Wider gives hints, too. Check the F4 Customs website- www.f4customs.com and see if it looks familiar. I have one and I really like it. See if you can find other threads on windshields- other people like other brands. Also look on sponsor's and other sites and search for windshields and you may see a food photo that you recognize.

              Lone Ranger, you may also want to look at the Clearview Windshield website, as they do offer a wider version of their windshields...I have one on my shelves right now...and you can get the usual vent in their windshields too. So that is an option of what your windshield may be.

                    Check the Tulsa windshield, I'll bet you have one of them.
                    If it slopes back and you almost hit your head on it when you get on the bike, it's a Tulsa

                        Nope, not even close. This one is square at the top as you can see and pretty much how the OEM was, but thanks.

                            looks like a Markland Is my guess had one on my 1500. That thing blocks a lot of wind.

                              Thanks but no, I checked. I'm still looking.

                                Years ago, Tulsa did make a big wide one similar to that as I also had one of those. It was like pushing a patio door down the road. Lost MPG so I sold it.
                                I have tried many on my 1500's and now on my 1800. Settled on the F4+4 clear with vent as my favorite.

                                        Received email from Cee Bailey and it said that it was not theirs.

                                        Still waiting for Tulsa response.
