Flyscreen wanted........
« on: September 16, 2008, 10:14:02 PM »
Kevin, I know you carry a flyscreen for the aluminum yoke option, but how about getting one for those of us who want to keep our caskett. I am going to try to make one using some handlebar windshield brackets and making a template from cardboard. Then I will take the template to the local plastics factory and have the shield cut. I would much rather buy one already made than have to do it myself. Thanks......Dewey.

I'll second that!  I'd like a fly screen for the regular casquette too--so I can put a movie cam behind it and not have to worry about getting the lens (expensive!!) boogered up with bugs. ;)

Yeah, it would be cool to have a little fly screen for the regular casquette.  Seeing the look of the one on Gordon May's bike got me thinking about it.



I have a small windshield that's detachable, but I'd consider leaving a smaller screen on all the time.

I made one myself, in the size that I wanted.
Not too hard to do.

Here it is on my bike.

    I Kind of like the Slipstreamer Tombstone, but I don't know if anyone has installed one on a Bullet.

We need a flyscreen for standard  bikes! The Puig flyscreen (available in Europe only it seems) is perfect. You need to sell this or one like it please!

B5, like a Model T, comes in any color, as long as it's black.

Hitchcock's has the best one I've seen and at a decent price. $15.00 shipping.
I looked for a Puig, but I couldn't find anyone who shipped to the US. And the mounting system was going to take some fiddling to work on my bike. There are a couple of others I looked at, but again, the mountings weren't optimal. they also left a gap at the bottom which I didn't care for.
The Hitchcock's comes with all the necessary hardware and is an easy mounting job. I did have to enlarge a couple of holes for the casquette screws, but that was it. It went right on.
Hitchcock has great service. It took about 8 days to get it.
