I originaly purchased the brackets and graident black a few years ago. I recently needed to replace the shield due to a crack. If you buy an accent color keep in mind that they will sun fade in time. This time I bought gradeint solar so there is no chance of color fade. otherwise its an excellent sheild, As for cost comparisons, this windsheild is low cost, light weight, good wind coverage, and very durable. Well worth the money spent.
Originally, intending to go the unobtrusive route, I purchased the Del Rey model. It is the smallest of the sport series. Looked cool, but was so small it didn't really do anything to keep the wind & bugs off me. Since I already had the sport mounting hardware, figured I'd give this one a try after reading several positive reviews on HDF. This is a great shield. After a few minor adjustments (height & tilt) it does exactly what I hoped it would. Inexpensive enough to replace down the road if it gets damaged. Recommended.
This is a great windshield, best coverage of the sport type windshields. This one replaces the same one I have had on my Harley for 10 years, due to hitting an electrical cable dangling across a street, I replaced it with this identical windshield. It also improves the stability of my Fatboy in the wind.
