Hi
I'm not sure of what you mean? The widshiled is modifyed by changing the angle so the top it is turned more back towards the driver. I have done that by setting longer screews at the bottom and middle of the brackets.
An other mod is that I set a thin aluminium bar on the top bolts to hold the tool bag.

Hi
Now I see what you mean. This is just part of the original windshield. The picture from the front show what it is.

Sweet Ride!

I have to ask, how difficult was it to remove the leather from the bags and get them prepaired for paint? I havent seen that done before and it might be a better alternative to spending a ton on a set of Corbins (as I am a tight a$$).

Anyway, fantastic looking scooter.
