    Any UK stockists of Recurve Screens?

    I'm thinking of trying a recurve screen for my Road King as at 6'4" the wind turbulence above 60mph is verging on unbearable. I don't think fork fangs and/or a triple tree will help as I experimented putting my hand in different positions around the tank (recommended to try to see if it reduces turbulence) and it makes diddly squat difference, whereas if I put my hand horizontal above the screen it's bliss.

    Anyway, does anyone know of a UK stockist of such screens, preferably the Freedom Shields one as shipping and TAX from the US is horrendous? I've found that arhcustom do the Klock Works one which may be an option, but they don't do one as tall as the Freedom Shield I don't believe, and I like how the Freedom Shields one looks the most OEM of all the ones I've seen.

    Freedom Shields told me that they don't have a UK agent. However, I managed to get one via a mate who regularly imports angling kit from Florida, the screen's excellent and lives up to the reviews on their website. No promises, but if you pm me with what you want, I'll see if he can oblige.

    Thanks very much, appreciate that and will bear it in mind. Do you have any photos of what it looks like on the bike please?

    Hopefully, this gives you an idea of the recurve, it's 3/16" thick - same as the stock Street Glide unit (HD's after market options Click image for larger version.

    Thanks. Looks good on that but I’m still on the fence about the look on Road Kings hence wanting to see some pics, the website pics aren’t the best.

    We bought a lowered replacement screen for my girlfriends QD Harley windshield on her Street Bob from them. Great service and quality and different tints. Looks like they do a taller replacement for a RK.

    Thanks, they're another US company though.

    Sometimes it’s the only option to get exactly what you want I’m afraid.
