Windblown: Adventure 'lip' screen wanted

Does anyone have for sale or know where to get an old screen/fairing for a pre-2000 640 Adventure with the lip design? Even the top few inches of one would help!

I made one for my '02 Adventure. Find a suitable piece of plastic, tape it in place. Use a heat gun to get it hot and mold it. I used a piece of sheet plastic that was used as a stiffener in an old luggage case. It was thin enough that I could trim it with scissors. Good at 90 mph. Applied with black duck tape, covered part with sticky shelf paper, actually a thin vinyl. I molded a flipped lip at the top.
It looks good.
Bill.

Red face Here'a a picture

Not a great picture but it gives an idea.
I have to admit it is held in place by black Duct tape.
The plastic is very thin but the whole thing works very well









Hope this helps.
Bill.

Here's the whole bike

The tires are gone.
It is lowered 4 inches, 100mm using internal suspension changes,
and linkage arms.
