Buy or borrow - OEM Honda windscreen in fair condition

I need an OEM windscreen to pull a mold from so that I can make another carbon windscreen. In fact, I don't actually have to buy one - borrowing one would also work.

At any rate, the windscreen doesn't have to be pristine - only the inside surface has to be OK. The outside can be totally scratched up, no problem.

PM me if you can help. Thanks!

How does this sound? I'll send you one to use as a mold, you return it along with a carbon fiber screen I can put on my 9er?

Just FYI, if you want one they are available? Yeah they are a little bit pricy but the fit and finish is nice. Came with the brackets and everything. It took me a while to find a supplier but here is a link.

No but it comes with some brackets that go right on the single headlight bolt on each side. Here are a couple of photos...

I don't think you can buy the brackets from Honda. What are you going to use?

The last M2 shield I bought from them did NOT come with brackets. I had to buy them from Buell. I think they stop selling then as well. That's been a few years though.

Thought about selling my OE screen but IMO nothing else looks like it belongs. The M2 is the closest, but I didn't like the "unfinished" look on the back side.

I mounted a Honda 599 screen using plexiglass brackets. It's cheap, easy to work with and has held up great for about 4 years.

It's just my opinion but the OE fairing doesn't look like it belongs. Mind you I did not buy my M2 screen for any aerodynamic performance. I am sure if I hunker down low enough there is some but I did mine for looks... LOL

I've never messed with makeing molds and such. I wouldn't even know where to start to make anything out of carbon fiber. Would you be willing to make a set of carbon heat shields from my factory ones?
Thanks,
