Cheap headlight, windshield

Haven't been on hear in awhile. I've been riding, just not writing. Any who I put together a cheap windshield setup. I liked the cafe one, but didn't want to pay the almost 600 bucks for the full set up. This comes out to about 100 bucks off ebay. Well hear are the pics to do the talking.

Nice.
It looks like a trimmed down version of the one I got. Slipstreamer Stealth.
I needed a wider shield to help stop my hands freezing during winter!

I'll give you a free tip if you want a cleaner look ontop of your bars without needing to buy anything more.
Swap the unused mirror mounts over from left to right. Than way the unused threaded plugs point down and be flush on top.
It'll work well on yours considering your bars are up high and wont slap tank at full lock. Doesn't work with mine as I wanted the bars down as low as possible.

This is more or less what i got, yet I think it was cheaper..... This was really just to try putting it together before getting nicer parts. So now that I got the general thing working I will start looking into a nicer head lamp. Something not so plastic-ie.

Yeah thank you. I got those black chrome caps, but they still stick up a bit to much. Oh a side note is that I made all this reversible, without as much as cutting in to the stock harness. Yeah this windshield does nothing for the hands. I just let them freeze, but 20 was the coldest I rode into work, and that is just under ten miles.

How did you mount the driving LED's on the side? I'm looking at those same ones but I'm not sure where/how to mount them
