wanted westrom pic w/o screen.

Hi, I posted in v-curios but got no reply.
Does anyone have a picture of a newer Wee Strom without a windscreen or with a really short one ? I prefer naked bikes but I like the leg room and comfort of the strom.
Thanks.

Take a look here.

I think you might like the super shorty windshield tinted dark. I think it looks great.

Can't comment on its function though.

There is a pic on the windscreen buffeting thread of a very short screen maybe a couple of inches. I'll see if I can find it.

Ok I found it. It was actually a YouTube video where the guy cuts down a screen. It also shows the bike without a screen. However, it is the previous model not the 2012+.

Thanks ! That might work for me. I might ask the local dealer to remove the screen off a new one. Not sure if they will.

It's very easy to take off. Just 4 Allen screws. You probably want to make sure you keep the screen though, as you can cut it down or just keep it to put back on when you eventually sell it.

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and that IMO was a bit on the hackish side. Although it may have worked just fine.

I would have done a little better job in the shape and the cut and no I'm not tooting my own horn.

Cutting plexi shouldn't result in having to put a piece of trim on the edge.

Just my useless .02

I am sure I have seen another one somewhere of a very short screen made out of some kind of black material. It finishes the front end very nicely and looks more like a small cowling than a screen.
