    As the proud owner/operator of one (see avatar), I can attest to the right-size-ness and great looks of the Rooster, and wish you luck.

    Replacement windscreens are still available in several sizes and colors, if you find a body alone in decent shape.

    They occasionally pop up on the 'Bay. I recommend checking it daily, as well as searching your local and nearby Craig's List ads.

    I use Search Tempest for more of a wide range Craigslist search. Once you master it, it is very cool tool.

    You will be surprised, but CR folks will ship for a few extra bucks. Considering that Craigslist is traditionally less expensive then eBay its a win win.

    I think I paid $60.00 for mine ( I am going to have to find exactly what I paid for it because I don't remember. )

    They are a really robust fairing and easy to work with. If it is busted up, as long as the out shell is intact, it is easy to fix. Here is the thread where I fixed mine: http://www.vetterowners.com/threads/vetter-rooster-fairing.203/

    What mounting brackets did you use? Will national cycle brackets work, they are available on ebay but I don't know which ones will work.

    The Rooster didn't come with a mount in the usual sense. The front attached to the bike's headlight shell bolts with a pair of straight flat bars per side with holes in them in a scissors configuration, but I used the L-shaped turn-signal relocation brackets instead, turning them over so they extended inside the fairing instead of below it. Then, an up-side-down U-shaped round rod attached to the bottom of the fairing, which was affixed to a pair of handle-bar clamps.

    I did use the National brackets to mount the fairing to the handle bars. To mount the fairing to the headlight, I had to get a little creative because the fairing almost doesn't fit the 1200 Goldwing. In the end, I made some flat bar stock work with hose clamps.
