Windshield and triple headlight setup?

I am looking at getting a Custom world windshield and a cobra light bar. I am nervous that the two will not be compatible. Does anyone have a similar set up? Or comments, ideas? Thanks

For a custom model the OEM lightbar might be a better choice as is longer providing more room for the windshield.

I have a Cobra lightbar and a National Cycles Heavy Duty windshield on mine. Not compatible! I did major surgery to the mounting brackets to get these to work together. Good luck, I couldn't find any windshields compatible with the Cobra lightbar. The windshield was on the bike when I bought it. I didn't even think about fitment when I bought the lightbar. What an eyeopening experience! Do your research before buying anything. The makers can tell you what will work together. Make them phone calls!
