Sportster/Dyna windshield?

I have an 09 Street Bob and wonder if I can use a windshield off an 08' Sporty. Has anyone tried this? Initial thought is I would have to change the quick release brackets to fit the larger forks.

Thanks,

Randy

Randy,

Not only are the forks on your Street Bob of larger diameter than the Sportster, the tubes are also further apart. You have the mid-glide width front end compared to the Sportster's narrow-glide width.

I just put a Wide Glide front end on my bike and have a windshield I am not using that will fit your Street Bob. If you are interested in it, send me a PM.

John
