Math, adaptation and a grinder; never forget the grinder for modification.

I'm pretty adept at Mcgivering but, I prefer one that will bolt right on with little fanfare. Even the Harley unit says it wont my ride.....no buggy

With most yes, however as one gets older, better math requires less hammer. You and i know it is best to use the brain more than banging 2 empty 'alves of coconuts together, besides we tend to go against regualtions.

I mean really, it comes down to making it fit for individual vision isn't. I can not see anyone just going by MoCo pretty pictures without saying " bit of that, bit of this " and now can i make it happen for myself.

You can get 55 mm fork clamp from Memphis shades. I really like the national cycle Mohawk windshield on my CX.
