Can anyone comment on this particular shield from JCWhitney?

I'm considering ordering one and looking it over. If nothing else, I'll only be out several dollars in shipping fees to return it...

I suppose that I could, but with the price of gas the way it is (there's a whole new discussion in itself), I'll think I'll just let FedEx take care of that for me.

i hope for your sake you prove me wrong

but pretty much every item i have ever seen from whitney is sold there for a reason. either cheap materials to begin with, cheaply made, factory seconds, or just plain not what i would call quality stuff.

buyer beware

Good news is that its the Show Chrome windshield that Directline sells under that name. Bad news is JCW says it's an error and wants $120 for it.

If its an error, then they need to either change the price or pull the page.

The first time I called on the phone, when I saw the post below mine I went back and ordered one online, sailed right through. It is still on thier site tonight so even if it is an error I'll take one.

Just got a call from JCWhitney. It is on back-order with an expected date of April 8th. Plus, they are refusing to honor the on-line price.

But the page is still on-line, showing it at $49.95.

It is probably just as well, that JCW refuses to honor their own listed prices. I truly wanted a Clearview with a vent anyway.

I live about 10 miles from JCW, and go there on weekends to check out the 'return' room. Some of the stuff is good, and some is totally trashed in shipping. They had some returned headlights there last week that the glass was all broken. Some items they sell are name brand, but they don't show it in the mag. You don't know until you receive it. Items in the return room generally go for half price of new. I've been tempted to buy something, then send it back, and go to the room and buy it back for 1/2 price. :lol:

I've seen w'shields there in the boxes, but figured they were the style that you add to cruisers. I'll have to start checking them out a little closer.

I called JCW on Monday morning and made it clear, in no uncertain terms, that I DO NOT want the windshield at the higher price, and to cancel the order.

This morning, I received a call from JCW asking me if I still wanted the windshield at $119.98... :cus:

I told the lady this morning that I had called and asked that it be cancelled yesterday. She replied "Well, it is marked to be cancelled, but the order hasn't been delivered to the cancellations department. I'll walk it over there now." :banghead:
