    Hi, I have owned an 09 Triumph America for 12 months and love it. Previously a Kawasaki VN800 and Suzuki Marauder 125. Mainly used for ferrying sons (one at a time) around to various activities as a car is a waste of time in Central London. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for new lower mounting brackets for the Roadster screen as both of mine have cracked and they appear to be out of production. I'll try technical as well! P.S It's blue!!

    Thank you Dozer's Dad!
    The screen is in immaculate condition apart form the brackets so I wanted to give it a go at finding the parts first. I ordered at World of Triumph but they came back with no longer in production. I have tried ordering from Italy, Lithuania and the USA but all show available then I get a refund!

    Thanks! This has been mentioned to me today. Any idea what sort of engineering company to look for - not my field!

    Thanks Ron, I have tried ordering it from Bikebandit.com and Pandoramotorsports.com in the states. I think bikebandit has one but not the other!

    Hi Juliet R
    Welcome to the Family. Any good engineering firm will knock those up for you. I assume you are one of our lady family so even better if you go to an engineering and smile lots they will do it for next to nothing. I am not being a sexist or anything. I have tried with a local engineering shop. Wore a mini skirt blond wig and all they charged me double.
    Ride Free.
    Joe.

    I’ll give the wig and the mini skirt a go but I’ll probably get charged double too - at my age!!

    You know all the inmates will want your photo on here now. That you said you are 21 and wear mini skirts.

    Thank you
