Hoske style windscreen, OR, the accidental project
« on: November 30, 2015, 11:31:08 AM »
So I have been looking for a small, Hoske style windscreen for the Beemer for awhile now. I wasn't sure if I really wanted one or maybe I wouldn't like it if I found one and paid for it.. Anyway, While in my shed yesterday, I remembered I had this:


So I made a cardboard pattern that looked about right and transfered it to the curved windshield

cut it out and I think it's going to work just fine.



I did put edging around the while thing and cut a relief for my high beam indicator...

Now I just need an ISDT inspection sticker from the 60's to put on it... I think it came out great!... and it was free!

I can't do the photos anymore.. Not sure how that skill left me in the dust... if someone wants to help, I will be glad to help them back, but I'm out... This should help though:

Picture the coolest windscreen ever made in the history of all motorcycling.. like one that Fonzie, Steve McQueen and Burt Munro all got together and made after a day of alcohol, cigarettes and bragging... that's what it looks like..

That's the coolest windscreen I have ever seen!.....or imagined.....er, uh, heard of?

Try Photobucket for your pictures, it is the only thing I have had success with.
79' Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special "The Daytona"
74' Yamaha RD350 "The Little Hot Rod"...currently under the knife.
02' Aprilia Capo Nord "The Mighty Ape"
93' Kawasaki KZ1000 Police cafe' "Snoopy"


Have a good and Godly day, for what lasting value is a good day if it is not also a Godly day?

I tried again... I was copying the wrong copying thing to paste in the right spot...  Give me a break, I'm cutting windshields out of junk, low tech stuff.

Nice, I might copy that for my little project. How was the mounting on those?

I think they were mounted on a special triple-tree upper plate. So, behind the headlamp bucket.
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?

You are right... I have cut two pieces of simple flat bar that mount into the bar clamp holes under the triple tree and then come straight out and have a 90 degree bend at the end to mount the windshield on...

I have a half windshield left if you want it!.

I see a cottage industry developing from discarded fairing windshields... You can have whatever is there on mine.. I think there is enough... and if you swing by and get Rick C's then you have enough to make a couple mistakes... What could go wrong!
