Looks like a National Cycle Plexifairing GT: http://www.nationalcycle.com/plexifairinggt-mt.html or a trimmed Plexifairing 3.

I think Charlie's right. I don't really like it much but if I ride without one I'll revert to the cruiser slouch which is both bad for one's posture and looks ridiculous. I'm still trying to fine-tune the positioning to suit me best but it's a losing battle.

Thanks for the report.. I never have found a big shield like I liked. Thought maybe you had.

Eastern Ontario, SW of Ottawa.
Great roads with little traffic...And, not too far from Calabogie, one of the nicest race tracks in North America!  it truly must be ridden!  Impeccable pavement mostly due to the limited racing there.  Mostly car clubs...
