warehouse error

So the other day i ordered a National Cycles F-18 shield and was excited when i opened the door and saw that I had a box with a windshield in it. I opened the box to find the biggest ugliest shield i have ever seen

The first picture is the shield i ordered, the second picture is what it would look like on a 919(hopefully no one on here ever gets one)...and the third sketch picture is off a cell phone in the garage showing how little of me you can see and I'm 6'1"

Put the larger shield on Dude....it's awesome looking.

Don't forget cruise control, and the heated grips.

no highway pegs included, but if they sell that big of a shield to anyone I agree that they should come with heated grips a cup holder, highway pegs, cruise control, and an air conditioner. It would block as much wind as a gold wing

There's been a huge accident on I-78. Ponch, John, hop on your 919's and get over there fast. [youtube]BSzEmPEnYxo[/youtube]

Can you get me some feedback on this f-18 as I am considering the same thing for me soon.

I ordered an F-16 2 weeks ago, and called them Tuesday to see where it was. I was told that the F-16 and F-18 sheilds were on a "material defect" backorder. When I was told the F-16 was on back order, I told him I would take the F-18 instead. He told me that both of those sheilds were out of stock, due to the materials being "defective", and it would be about 3 weeks or so.

i orderd my windshield from chromeworld. its not the little sport shield you were hoping for but it aint a cruiser windshield either. its actually just enough to have the effect of windshield without looking to big or like a cruiser. they got it to me within 4 days.

I have the F-15 tall and it helps alot on the highway! I had to improvise on the install procedures. It works great for me.
