The company History began in the early 1970s, when Bob Eggerichs founded CF, Inc., the predecessor of Slip Streamer. He set up shop in South St. Paul, Minnesota, and manufactured the first clear acrylic stand-alone windshield. At an industry trade show, he ran a contest to name this new product and participants suggested many, many ideas—some funny, some practical. “Slip Streamer” 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 “Slip Streamer” became synonymous with all-acrylic motorcycle windshields.
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 Slip Streamer 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, Slip Streamer 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 the Blaine, Minnesota, location. As always, the emphasis is on keeping the optics perfect so your view is clear and distraction free.
Their commitment to customer service includes listening to customers. If you ever experience a problem with one of their products, you can contact them. “We’ll deal with any problems directly and take care of it as quickly as we can to ensure everyone is satisfied.” Check out the whole line up of Windshields by Slip Streamer for Motorcycles and ATV’s at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com).
