I've been looking for photos of the new V7 Stone with one of the aftermarket windshields installed on the bike without success. It looks like MG Cycle has a nice windshield for the model, but I wonder how clunky it will make the bike look. Can someone point me to or post some photos of the V7 Stone with a windshield installed?  Thanks!

I'm pretty sure there are already pics here of a V7C (and maybe a Stone) with that same OEM windshield - let me search...

OK, so I searched V7 Windshield
 

Here are some Results

Aftermarket V7C

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=42360.0



OEM Stone

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=57634.0






Aftermarket - Dart Flyscreen (my little bro's bike)



Dan R's not sure if this is the OEM one again



I think he later changed to a small sport fairing

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=35905.40





Alternate fairing pic




If my little bro sees this I'm sure he'll add a pic of his V7C with the large touring windshield that Harpers sells.

Hey, Kev-

Thanks! I was too specific when I did my search on the forum. The smaller plexiglass windshields look pretty unobtrusive and functional and that LM1 style fairing and windsheild really looks nice on that white bike. Thanks again for the photos, they are very helpful.

This is my winter "barn door",  a National Plexistar 2 http://www.nationalcycle.com/catalogue/Classic.shtml


And, another shot of it with the Dart fly screen on it (Kev M posted a pic earlier in the thread, but it is hosted on my comcast account, which is having issues, so I'm reposting it on postimage.org).

The problem is that crowd never existed, there were just one or two nit wits who couldn't understand differences in bike design/marketing and resultant classifications.

I've got to admit, that rider should think about "lightweight travel."

I tour on a V7.  Before that I toured on a 500cc (BMW R50). 

But...I tour light.  Simplicity and lightness for their own sake.

Carry less and make do.  The whole idea of our possessions owning us.  Instead of us, owning controlling them.

It's a good reason to like the V7.  Simplicity and lightness.

The Record kit fairing is manufactured by Stucchi Luigi for Moto Guzzi too.

Definitely nice looking gear and being Stucchi will be very well made, but I don't think we will see too many around. A friend of mine is a Guzzi mechanic and trying (unsuccessfully) to get a better deal through Guzzi.

The regular Luca Bar designed Stucchi Luigi fairing endied up costing me the equivelant of 600, delivered to my door from the factory (which is a 1/4 mile up the hill from the Guzzi factory in Mandello del Lario.)

Hi Guysm

I'm looking to buy some of those Guzzi windshield mounts for the 750, used. If I can get my hands on some, i'll look into producing them and a touring windshield to go with them. I've had a few pleas from 750 owners.

Hey Jim,

I have a v7 stone with a Breva windscreen on it from mg cycle. My dealer had to make a very slight mod to the bracket, but it looks great (at least in my opinion). Take a look at the YouTube video which shows the windscreen.

Cheers,
