Got the screen from 'Economy Windscreens Specialists' Based in London (near Oval tube) their no: 0207 820 0343. It was 85 for a brand new screen and fitting for a classic 900. Otherwise... based in Bristol quoted me 60+VAT for a second hand screen and fitting (if thats nearer your neck of the woods). I was told by lots of people it's a b**ch of a job to do yourself but watching it done it didn't seem too hard - you can pick-up a second hand screen for 30 and fit yourself if you're feeling brave. Good luck. GG.
