Flyscreen is from National Cycle and available stateside from many sources for $120 or so. It has a little bit of chrome on it, but not too much. Mounts easily to headlight and takes a little wind off my chest, but not much from face. If you don't like the chrome, consider the Dart Flyscreen common on Triumph bikes and used by other TUX owners in this group.

Chic Design double seat with grey top and the WM Productions triumph style muffler are both from Japan. Got them from Samurider.com. Neither was cheap, especially with shipping, but I wanted them both to try to make my TUX look more Triumph-like!

Finishing-up installation of Lucas reproduction tail and turn signals this week. Need to put my pedestrian slicer back on and fit shrouds to the shocks to complete my desired look.

My Dad laughs that in the early 60s they would have died to put a megaphone exhaust on their Triumphs, while I am spending $ to replace my megaphone with a standard looking muffler!

I've owned a few bikes over the years and this has turned out to be my favorite. It's cheap and easy to maintain, a blast to ride and looks great, too.

Got it from Dart Flyscreens. It's made for a Triumph Bonneville but fits the TU perfectly. It needs slightly longer bolts where it mounts to the headlight.

I wanted just enough protection so that I wouldn't feel beat up after a long day's ride and it does the job. I want to say that National Cycle or someplace makes one that's cheaper but it had a chrome band across the bottom that I didn't like.

I have also had a lot of bikes over the years, and I think the TU is in the top 3.
And the others in the running have not been made for over 30 years.

KevinMcCall, thanks for the info on screen, NJ-Brett, thanks for all of your input on all things TU. The final decesion to get a TU was the fact that your enthusiasm for this bike was infectuous. Finding a great deal helped too! I bought mine with 1424 on the odometer a couple of months ago, just turned over 3000. NJ-Brett is right, it just keeps on getting smoother & better the more I ride it. Thanks
