82 Interstate Windshield options ?

5835 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Retrowrench
Im wondering if different height windshields are still available anywhere for a 1982 Silverwing Interstate ?

Mine has a windshield that is just a bit to short and was wondering if there is a source for a windscreen a few inches taller.

If you measure straight up the middle, from the top edge of the aluminum trim to the tip of the clear windshield, mine measures 19 inches.

What was the height of a "Standard" windshield in this area ? Maybe mine has a slightly short screen compared to stock ?

Who is a good mailorder supplier for new screens ?

Lastly, is the Silverwing windscreen the same as a goldwing or some Vetter type ?

The prior owner had a wider and taller than normal windscreen on the interstate I had. (seen in my old avatar) I loved it because I could ride year round. Kept the rain off especially since it was tall... took 4 fingers over my helmet before I felt the wind draft. It protected my hands so I just wore insulated work gloves. I was planning on cutting the height down a bit since it would ice up in wet weather when it got to below 38 degrees and I couldn't see over it. I still would have kept it wide.

It was a slipstream.... think the '168 clear' from what I was able to search... see first link.

(notice how it drops down on the outter lower edges,.. this would follow the edge of the hondaline fairing towards the mirror)


Great option with that slipstreamer taller one that wraps around for cooler weather !!!!! Thanks for the links !
