Yet another TW genius!
OK you guys, after the videos that zdriver1 posted (Click Here) I was all pumped up to make a version of the Windscreen for the T-Dub. Everything went according to plan and within less than 3 hours I was finished with my project, the windscreen is still in an experimental phase and it is made of cardboard but it is as sturdy and solid as it can be.
For you guys who do a lot of off-road riding the windscreen is obviously to long and you're just going to have to make a shorter version of it

I started with a flat piece of cardboard, started drawing lines on it and then I just went ahead, cutting and folding until I was satisfied with the shape and size

Then I applied some tape all around the edges of the windscreen

Then I attached the windscreen on my previous Jimbo shield lookalike

Then it was time for me to spray-paint the whole thing with a very upmarket camouflage paint

I'm going to do test rides for the next week or two and I will make a template of the windscreen for those of you who are interested

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
That looks kind of tall - I hope you don't take out your face with it if you go over a big bump or lurch forward a bit while riding on the trails.

Brilliant! Designed with crumple-zone cardboard to reduce chance of injury if impacted...so much superior to stiff and sharp carbon fiber or acrylic.
The shield actually looks very nice on the bike with the matching teal paint, almost looks like a promotional bike parked in front of the Yamaha store next to a promotional sign of the same color. The origami bent cardboard reminds me of stress plywood skin home built kayaks, it is a strong contruction method...here is a Pygmy Kayak as an example.th-17.jpeg.

I like the full coverage design. I am kind of short though, so would eye holes compromise the strength and/or aerodynamics ?
