Madstad With Chrome Trim?

Do any Madstad owners use the HD chrome windshield trim with their Madstad? Got any Pics to poste?

I don't run trim on my new bike. I found it to be more of a hassle than it was worth. Food for thought.

Cool. The reason why I ask is, yes the chrome trim is somewhat a PIA. My glide has a small amount of abrasion under one side of the chrome trim, not visable to most people but I can see it. I might be able to buff it out but if I can't it would be good to leave the trim on. Your bikes look good with the chrome trim and MS shield. Thanks for the pics.

Guess I could also go with the Kury black chrome trim.

yea the Madstad lower shield make the trim not fit flush, so I took the inner screws and ground them down some to bring the trim in closer, didnt even have to retap the holes, but maybe I got lucky. guess I took off alittle more than a 1/16".

I would try to buff those scratches out first with some polishing compound. That stuff works wonders.
