1989 Tour Glide Windshield Replacement

I've obtained a 89 Tour Glide (the one that is basically the daddy of the Road Glide). The windshield on it isn't stock but sits up way too high. I've done a fair amount of internet browsing but cannot seem to find a replacement. I know what some will say "If you want it to look like a Road Glide then go buy a Road Glide" but the price was too right to pass up on this one. Any tips or vendors would be appreciated.

Doesn't look all that different than the first gen RG's. Maybe you can modify one?

Unfortunately the fairings are vastly different.

OP, you may try taping that one off to the height and shape you want and cut it down. There may not be any vendors that still make a windshield for this bike but you could try eBay or something like that.

+1 on the Slipstreamer windshields. My brother has one on his 85, and I just put one on my 10 back in December. Quite happy with both.

Scarlet Red 2010 Road Glide Custom named Trixie - She's a flashy little minx..
Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.

The first time a saw a Tour Glide I remember thinking that's the ugliest thing I ever saw. 30 years later, they grew on me. Good luck with that classic!
