I recently constructed my own windshield for my bicycle using Lexan and wood. It works great but it is hand-made thing and I might be willing to buy a premade one that is curved (mine has a 90 degree angle).

But is there a good one available?

I'd like to see a pic of the one you made. – ananka Nov 17 '11 at 23:13
I haven't seen a windscreen on a bike in over 20 years. – Daniel R Hicks Nov 18 '11 at 0:36
Windscreens/fairings are common on recumbent bicycles – freiheit Nov 18 '11 at 3:02
No idea of quality, but googling "bicycle fairing upright" finds some options. Some of the recumbent fairings look like they might be possible to mount on a regular upright bicycle. – freiheit Nov 18 '11 at 3:05
Added a fairing tag. – Neil Fein Nov 18 '11 at 7:19

In The Netherlands they are very common, because we used to place a child-seat on the handlebars.

Here's a link to a second-hand website, that offers a lot of windscreens. For some reason its in Dutch, but I'm sure you can get lots of inspiration, and maybe even get a cheap one.
