Help wanted: ID that windscreen

Earlier this year I bought a few used windshields from another forum member. I've now had the opportunity to try my stock shield, 2 shorter BMW shields, and an 'unknown' (the seller did not remember the brand name). Well, the 'unknown' is by far my favorite, but is a bit taller than I like it. Even in the lowest position I get no wind buffeting my helmet like the BMW shields. However, I'd like it to go lower since I live 1½ miles down a gravel (usually mud) road/private drive and want to see every soft spot. I prefer to look over the shield. Yes, I know some of you have cut the bottom off to make a shield shorter but I'm confident I am lacking the skills to do that. I'm OK with a chainsaw or sledge hammer but could not do finish work to save my life.

Check out the attached photos - does this shield look familiar to anyone? There's no ID markings on it anywhere. I would like to find another one similar but shorter.

Thanks in advance,

Nope! The CB only has a curb at the top, not to the sides. I do believe it is a parabellum.

There's no doubt in my mind, it's a parabellum. If you decided to cut it down, don't cut the top off, it will change the airflow and you may not be happy with it. You can order a new one in a shorter version from Parabellum.
If you decide not to use it and it's in good shape, I may be interested in buying it from you.

Thanks for the help all. I will keep my eyes open for a shorter Parrabellum. Getting cooler here now so I'll keep this one on at least until spring though.

Might it be an Aeroflow?
