Dan Brown (DB) leg shields were manufactured in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They've been unavailable for many years and a few years ago Bill Dudley had a local fabricator produce a limited run of fiberglass replicas. Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle shared his fitment and mounting ideas on the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group. In Charlie's own words:

I've been pondering how to mount these over the last few weeks. Tried fitting them to the crashbars for the factory metal legshields, but the holes didn't line up. Tried to find the rubber covered clamps for 78 inch diameter tube locally, without success.

Browsing the electrical department in Lowes, I found 34 inch One Hole Straps for EMT tubing. They fit perfectly around the crashbar, are zinc-plated and cheap for a bag of 20. I used three on each legshield and isolated the shield with rubber washers. Now all I have to do is get the shields painted and I'll be ready for cold weather riding!
