Interesting Windscreens Out of Oz: Group buy?

Came across this on a FB group. I may order one of the GSPD screens for my '89 GS2PD.

Eaglescreens.com

Group buy, anyone?

Not sure a group buy would be worth it unless you have a couple people close by you. I would be interested and am checking into a summer screen for my R100RT. I am located in Northern Ill North of Chicago in case anyone from S. Wisconsin or NW Indiana would be interested.

Are you looking at trying to negotiate a volume discount or to save on international postage or both?

All of the above.

I also noticed that they have a duplicate of the original PD screen. The weird bumpy one. It's not adjustable but high on cool-factor. Of course, I never do anything to my bike just because it's cool. I'm way above that.

I'm coming to the US in July - I could chuck a few of these in my luggage and post once I land in California.

Lemme check with them on postage. That might make sense.

I can vouch for the quality of Eagle screens ... had a couple of those myself on the RT and RS's ... I think he still operates out of Perth .

Good luck with shipping charges ... I think you will find it's ridiculous

I have a dark one on my RS. It's sturdy and a great product.

You all should check out Frog Specialties.They are out of Torrance CA,I bought a screen for my GSPD from them for not a lot of money.I think it was maybe $120 and is a very nice quality product.Made in France.

I saw the Frog Specialties website a while ago, but they don't list a screen for the R100GS(PD)

Did you contact them directly to order?

They've got the screen, or can order you one. And yes, I had to call them to order it. Price was very good though. About $50 less than an equivalent Parabellum. I'll report on quality when it arrives...
