    JE Customs Accents makes nice chrome wind deflectors for Harleys at this time.

    He says he is very interested in making them for the Indians, starting with the Chief models.

    They would be similar to Indian but instead be made of light weight metal that has be chromed.

    Here is the link to his Harley Wind Deflectors
    Wind Deflectors for FLD SwitchBack Harley Davidson

    So, if interested, post back here and I will let him know the feedback.

    Those are nice, but the HD front fork wind deflectors are under $100.00.

    Hay old timer the Indian wind deflectors Cost 179-250. That I could find on the internet , so the cost of the JESCustomAccents will be in the same price range and made here in the USA. Unlike the HD ones made in China for 10 bucks.
    The polycarbonate wind guards to not seem to fit the style of the bike and really stick out as modern stick ons not really designed for the character of the motorcycle.
    With that side is there anyone out there with a vintage I can talk to?

    I keep hearing that you have to remove these in the summer or you will overheat your engine. Have you guys found that to be true and if so how do the lowers on a bike stay one without overheating stuff? Just curious.

    I may well be interested in a set of wind deflectors - and welcome to the forum, Joseph.

    In my 7 yrs of making deflectors and putting a bike in a wind tunnel, there has been no over heating.
    Do to the fact that only some of the wind get deflected and the velocity of the wind slows done. which allows heat transfer to the air better. If you think about it when you bike sits at a stop light or in heavy traffic there is no wind and it does not over heat. but if you could sit at the light /traffic and pass air over the motor the motor will cool better. Thus at speed by reducing the speed of the air flow over the engine there will be no over heating.
    Hope I explained this good enough.
