Easy to make yourself just buy a piece of acrylic sheet (perspex) make a couple of brackets to bolt it onto mirror fixing. Like this one on my bike. Make a cardboard template first then cut acrylic to shape from it.

15 inches from top of headlamp cut out x 20 inches wide. You may need to adjust height depending on your height. You need to see over top rather than through it. I made brackets from 1 inch x 1/4 alloy bar that I had available. Bent back at 70 degrees. Thickness 5mm
The windscreen has a slight curve across it, just heat it up in boiling water.

I did not use the mirror fixing screws because the metal is rather aluminum and maybe it can not withstand the vibrations.
So I made two bases fixed to the screws that hold the plastic lid under the steering wheel.

Here a few photos of mine:

Good alternative fixing, but I have covered a few 1000 miles with mirror mount fixings no problem at all, and easy to remove screen if needed.

The underneath is where mine is mounted also, but most of the time i do not use a screen as i don't use the Townmate when it's raining. Duckrider your bike looks very nice in green. :d\\'-\\':

adespin, thank you for your kind words.

Yes the green and blue are really nice colors.
I made it in pieces and i repaint it before ten years.


I have found some screens at the past , here are some links:
