What’s the plan “B” in case this windshield isn’t out there?
Plan "B" is a quality aftermarket one Steve if I don't find the needed parts. Even if I do find most of the parts, most likely I will have to use an aftermarket window since any oem or nos one may not be clear enough to see through anymore. I do have a couple of leads on the missing parts but the possibilities of obtaining them quickly is not good. This is because the individuals who told me they may have the parts are super active in the vintage motorcycle world, attending every vintage swapmeet and vintage auction around the world. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope the parts pan out for me. In the meantime, I've been researching military files for identification markings. The markings I choose must fit my early type III 42WLA and its engine case belly numbers. A few weeks ago I thought I had the markings nailed down but recent government military file discoveries, just for a start of its history, now have me set in the North African invasion of WW2 as a reconnaissance motorcycle in 194., Reconnaissance also know as the eyes and ears of the U.S. Army. Reconnaissance motorcycles scoped the enemy held lands for details on military gun placements and other heavy artillery. They also took notes on troop movements and the like. They were basically this first to enter enemy lines, bringing back intelligence data to the top brass so the top brass could plan invasions and use the forces at their command efficiently and effectively. I will post some of that military data soon.
