Hand Deflectors for a GL1200A Aspencade

Post by Quarteg »



The only complaint I have with my bike is that my hands get cold when it is under 50 degrees. Fortunately my gloves come with a wind breaker and allow me to ride in the upper 30's low 40's.

Ultimately I was wondering if anyone makes wind deflectors for the Goldwing. I don't need anything fancy, just something to keep the wind off my hands in the cooler temps.

Did you try a Google search? Try gl1200 hand deflectors
I think there are /were some that bolted to the handle bars/grips?

Something like this at JP cycles @$90 or make your own. Just need some acrylic and a way to clamp it on. You can heat it with a heat gun and form the shape you want and cut to pattern you want just like your windshield can be cut down, infact if you have and old windshield you could use that to make them from.

Hey neighbor
Are they still available? I remember ordering some for a customer back in '75 while I was a parts manager in NH.
