Say hello to my little friend

Post by breaknwind » Tue May 22, 2018 5:51 am

Crappy camera, glare and poor photo skills. My SH was named Fuego Negro, now its name is El Diablito :mrgreen:
I installed the graphics on the inside to stop the sand blasting affect the black flames suffered.

Hello lil' friend........
I like the idea of using that wasted portion of the windscreen to apparently add more meat onto the front-end and avoid the praying-mantis appearance from some angles I notice. Nice job.
Is that a Givi windscreen?

Nope, totally custom. I'm a machinist.

Did you pull the mirrors out farther?

I fabricated some 1/8" stainless steel to bolt to the scooter brackets. I used 1/2" SS tubing for support rods. Some 1/2" aluminum rod to connect the shield to the SS tubing. I can unscrew 6 screws to remove the shield from the bracket. Then undo the stock mirrors. When it's removed I can roll the scoot into my Astro cargo van and no trailer is needed. The shield is fabricated from fracture resistant acrylic(resist 65).

When I looked at Givi windscreens, the support brackets looked extremely slender/frail and drove me to cough-up for the factory getup.....I thought maybe Givi 'saw-the-light' and greatly improved their system....Beg your pardon for mistaking this hallucination for you fine craftsmanship......Nice job.
