How can I make my own windshield?

Postby Lauranda on Sun Aug 29, 2010 2:16 pm

Hi Guys!

A long time ago I stumbled across instructions (complete with pictures) on how to make your own windshield for a Metropolitan with lexan plexiglass and some tubing from the hardware store. I bookmarked it as a reference for the future. That was three years ago.... Now, when I finally need the instructions, the bookmark is a dead link. :((

Can anyone tell me where I can find it again?

It might be a waste of time and money. I tried to save some dough with the prima windscreen for the Met. It's only $49, a sum you can easily spend trying to make your own. I ended up selling the prima screen on Ebay and going with the Honda screen for the Met. At $92 on Ebay, it was money well spent, and far less than dealers in my area are getting for the same part. It works like a champ and is rock solid.
Good Luck
