Is this windshield orginal?

I tried to cut down the windshield about 1.5" and danged if it broke on me. I've done this on another bike a long time ago and it didn't break. I need to get another one to match the hardware so if you could identify this. It looks like somebody glued the little star emblem on the front. It might have had the Vulcan emblem pulled off as it is a rough spot where it should be ..I thank you.

I believe the classic LT (that's lettuce and tomato according to Ponch) came with that one or a very similar one. It kinda look OEM to me.

You can use the broken one as a template and have one made with better material.

My first shield was a Memphis shades and it had a dark purple hue in the bottom which matched my bike perfectly. Unfortunately, I live in oil-country and a softball sized rock launched from between an oncoming tanker truck duals took out the left side. Advertising shows that it would survive shotgun blast but not a boulder..... Completed the ride to Idaho anyway but on the way back I caught a very large raven on the right side which bent the shield right over. Good thing I had one. Now have a new shield made of thicker stuff. Critters grow big here lol

Ouch! I had a friend that was riding his dirt bike on the road one day. He noticed something between two of the wheels and about the time he figured out what it was....the brick came flying out and just missed his head. He said he was pretty shaky the rest of the ride home.

I have a BLT (BIG Lettuce N' Tomato.....lol), and the OEM windshield has bigger supports in it:
