For more than 45 years, Slipstreamer has been manufacturing, creating, and updating quality motorcycle windscreens and products. Our goal has always been to bring superior products to motorcycle enthusiasts.
Our company history began in the early 1970s, when Bob Eggerichs founded CF, Inc., the predecessor of Slipstreamer. He set up shop in South St. Paul, Minnesota, and manufactured the first clear acrylic stand-alone windshield. At an industry tradeshow, he ran a contest to name this new product and participants suggested many, many ideas—some funny, some practical. “Slipstreamer” stood out and became not only the product name but, in 1973, the company name as well. Throughout the 1970s, the company flourished and the name “Slipstreamer” became synonymous with all-acrylic motorcycle windscreens.
By the 1980s, the company had moved to Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and was selling not only six different windshields but other products for motorcycles and their riders, including leather gloves, rain suits, and luggage. But that changed when Bob’s son Bob came on board. He had ridden motorcycles throughout his life, and wanted Slipstreamer to get back to its roots. He eliminated the other product lines and, along with his brother, Ron, focused solely on what the company did best: manufacturing windshields. New products were added, and in the early 1990s, the company moved its operations to its present location in Blaine, Minnesota.
Today, Slipstreamer is one of the largest manufacturers of motorcycle windshields in the world—we create windshields under our name and through private labels, along with doing custom work and plastic fabrication for other industries. But throughout, quality and customer service have remained our priorities. As technology and computers have evolved over the years, the look of our shop has changed, but all our windshields are still hand molded at our Blaine, Minnesota, location. As always, the emphasis is on keeping the optics perfect so your view is clear and distraction free.
