Title: Black Windscreens - Invader/Intruder
Post by: mswyka on November 12, 2012, 08:52:38 AM
Folks:

Good morning.  I have just a couple of Low Black Windscreens for Invader, Intruder, and Interceptor.  We ended up with a bad batch of raw material so these windscreens have some minor scuff marks.  They are 60 mil polyethylene and virtually indestructible.   They are available first come, first serve while the supply lasts for $40 shipped in the continental US.

We live in hope that we can get a supply of clean, unscratched raw material in the near future so that we can re-stock with Invader/Intruder and LTD screens.

Feel free to e-mail at mark.swyka@frontiernet.net

Thanks

Mark

I have one and love it.  My kids couldn't break it when they used to borrow my sleds. ;D

Makes me want to get an Invader just so I could get another one of these windscreens! Got one for the 340 I rebuilt and it fit perfectly! I will most likely get another one for my 4/6 once they are available as it will fit better than the fiberglass one I have now.  No gaps in the corners, no scratching of the hood either since it is a softer material.

 I know you can't see through it but who is short enough to use the low windscreen anyhow. An exceptional product!!

For anyone debating getting one of these windshields, they are very sharp!  Mark does a nice job on these to make sure they fit right, plus like everyone else mentioned, they are very durable.  They're definitely worth the price!

Tom, Jim & Mike:  Thanks for endorsements.  Keep on sledding.

Our snow here in NY is waning and the kids have gone back to school so I am taking orders on a first come, first serve basis for a limited run of LTD windscreens - a total of 6 or 7.   $60 includes shipping within the continental US.

I don't know  what looks prettier, the windscreen or the snow on the ground.  Sure wish we had more snow down here.  Happy sledding.

Well it is true that I make some parts - mostly out of necessity - but this is only a hobby, not a business.  The only parts that I have been fabricating are black windscreens and suspension lift brackets.  If you check around the site you will find that there are many of us with resources for different Kawasaki sled parts - used, NOS and aftermarket.  Mostly we are just finding creative ways to keep our own sleds running and to the extent that we are able, to help out others with a passion for these old machines.

One Intruder/Invader screen left in stock.  Don't know how soon we will re-stock.

Yesterday we were attempting to straighten up the garage and put a few of the spare sled parts in storage.  Looks like we have one Invader/Intruder windscreen left in stock for anyone working on a summer project.

Have any ltd replica windshields been made yet?
Title: Re: Black Windscreens - Invader/Intruder
Post by: mswyka on August 21, 2013, 11:02:12 AM
Thanks for asking.  One Invader windscreen on hand but no LTD screens in stock at the moment.  At this point I don't expect to be making any new ones until later this fall. 
Title: Re: Black Windscreens - Invader/Intruder
Post by: mswyka on November 20, 2013, 09:12:21 AM
Each day is shorter than the day before, there is a nip in the air, and is that a hint of two-stroke exhaust on the breeze?  With fall rapidly racing towards a close and winter hot on its heels we have been getting a few inquiries for windscreens.  While the fab shop was re-tooled for other projects over the summer there exists the very good possibility that we might have a few windscreens ready in time for Christmas. 

By last count it looks like we have three Invader and three LTD windscreens already spoken for.  So, since we only make screens in limited runs it is best to place a paid order to be sure that your windscreen will be there when you need it.  Invader windscreens are $65 and LTD windscreens are $75.  Price includes shipping within the continental US via USPS and UPS and to some locations in eastern Canada via USPS.  Shipping discounts are available on multiple windscreens shipped to the same location.

Good afternoon.  I was on vacation this week and had the chance to make up a few Invader/Intruder windscreens.  Let me know right away if you need one.

We have some LTD blanks, so if you need one of those let me know and we can get one or two made up also.

These windscreens are not for show sleds.  They are good for everyday riders who don't mind a few minor cosmetic imperfections.  They are however indestructible and a good, low cost alternative to fiberglass.  After fabrication, each windscreen is trial fit on a sled hood to be sure of proper fit.

Invader/Intruder windscreens are $65 and LTD windscreens are $75.  Price includes shipping within the continental US via USPS and UPS and to some locations in eastern Canada via USPS.  Shipping discounts are available on multiple windscreens shipped to the same location.

One Invader/Intruder windscreen left.

A few LTDs available next week.

Shipping charges have unfortunately increased.

Folks:

Good morning.  For anyone considering a black screen for your sled, we are down to one (1) Invader/Intruder windscreen and one (1) LTD windscreen left in stock. 

At this point it is uncertain if we will have any more before next season.  And, if we don't get some snow, I might be tempted to ship windscreens with a sled attached.

Without the sled attachment, Invader/Intruder windscreens are $65 and LTD windscreens are $75.  Price includes shipping within the continental US via USPS.  Canadian shipments add $10 US.

Looks like all windscreens are spoken for.  This does not mean that we can't make more - there just won't be any on hand for rapid shipment for a while.

Send me a PM with your name and address and how many you would like.  We may still be able to get a few more out before the end of the season.

Good afternoon.  I expect to be making a few more windscreens later this summer.  Half are already spoken for so let me know if you want to be added to the list.  It will be first come, first serve.

Post by: mswyka on June 09, 2021, 08:31:34 AM
How much are they?

They usually run about $50.  My biggest challenge of late is the cost of shipping.  Shipping can add 50% to the cost.  And shipping to Canada is outrageous.

I stress that these windscreens are for everyday riding sleds, they are not for show sleds.  For the show sled it is better to get NOS or fiberglass.  The great things about these windscreens are that they are flexible (even in the coldest temperatures), are unbreakable, and they cannot be damaged by fuel or cleaners.

I am pleased to report that the Invader windscreens are done for everyone who pre-ordered.   

I will be starting on the LTD windscreens next. 

Now the challenge will be to find enough of the correct size boxes so that they can be shipped out.

If anyone is interested, I have 2 Invader windscreens that are not yet spoken for.  $50 + shipping.

For anyone looking for a LTD windscreen, I have placed an order for more material.  Should the supply chain cooperate the plan is to have LTD windscreens ready later this year.  If you want to secure your place in line be sure to send me a PM with your contact information and the number that you would like to have.  There will probably be about 10 in the run so finished windscreens will likely be limited to that number.

Good afternoon.  I have been out of town for a bit and just getting caught up.  Send me a PM with your name, address, email, and phone and I will add you to the list.
