Screens ?

Anyone recommend a screen supplier ?

I'm trying to get hold of a tinted screen for my 1990 CBR600, I've done some searching and came across Skidmarxs in Weymouth.

Can anyone recommend any others ?

Thanks.

Nuts & Bolts

Decent prices, really helpful staff and carry a massive range of stainless nuts and bolts.

Nuts & Bolts - Weston-super-Mare

Close to Halfords in Weston-super-Mare, open 8am - 5:30pm and 8am - 12pm on Saturdays.

They also do mail order but looking on their website there's a £3 min p&p charge.
