I got mine on fleabay for <$20. May have been <$10 I can't remember. It's PVC but looks like leather. Came with a single center hole. I had to drill 2 holes thru the metal plate in the inside because my windshield (Silverado) does not have a center bolt.

Jardine Rumblers Slash Cut Slip-ons $50
Ext. Depot Billet ORK $120

When I bought mine, it was called a windshield tool bag. If I remember right, it was less than $20. I found one that fit between the windshield brackets and fits down low and out of sight . Real handy for storing small items and keeping the clutter out of the saddlebags.

Are these windshield bags (purses) something that women mostly use? I bought a 2007 V-Star 650 a week ago and it came with one mounted on the inside of the windshield. It looks like a woman's change purse, and I'm not all sure if I want to leave it there.

I have one on the front of my bars above the headlight, it has two buckles on either side and velcros to the fork. It's not bad, not sure how it will fit when I get the windshield on.. lol

Sorry for my description...did not mean to offend anyone. Thanks for the suggestions for finding a "windshield bag", perhaps my research will be more successful, now.

I have one, and as others have said, they are great place for routine items such as your wallet, phone, keys, reg and insurance. Plus, pocket change. I hate having things in my pocket when riding, so I really like it.

Current Ride: 2013 Honda F6B

Former Rides:
2004 VStar 1100 Classic
2008 VStar 1100 Silverado

Hi CandyRedVstar That is exactly why I am researching for a windshield bag and for which I want to purchase this. What brand did you buy? and does it have velcro, straps w/buckles or turn button to keep closed? Thanks for your response.
