Seriously, somebody needs to pick up the reigns on this. I now dread having to either install the stock windshield or reverse engineer my own for a one-off if I ever have to replace it. I hate to even ask, as I have all kinds of irons in the fire on my own, but if nobody decides to do it, I may have to ask you about buying your equipment and a healthy amount of knowledge.

I am surprised the factory isn’t interested.

I just completed my last run of windshields and I have one that has not been spoken for.

Received my shipping notice yesterday, thanks Steve! Did you get someone to takeover the business?

This is where I bought my previous Canopies. Maybe they would be interested in your mold and then be a regular supplier.

I am just installing my windshield now, mine requires a lot of cutting on the bottom due to my very modified nose to accommodate my engine choice, so now that future windshield availability is in question my pucker factor while cutting/drilling is very high!
