« on: September 30, 2014, 12:53:04 am »
Greetings!
Just purchased an 84 VT500, and I'd like to uses it as long as possible into Winter. Any original windshields available? Or tips on what Universal Aftermarkets oferf protection and quiet?
My thanks,
Jim Babz

I don't know of any off the shelf fairings. You will probably have to find a universal fit type of unit for a rectangular headlight.

I had thought to try & modify a quarter fairing from an Interceptor or a Nighthawk 700. I think that would look sharp & might even look like it was factory installed.

Good luck & please let us know what you find.
