Default Unusual windshield frame

In the process of trying to find the RIGHT windshield I have come across another problem. This Lynx vin shows it as '01, but not sure WHAT the windshield frame is. Bottom of outside frame is basically 39-5/8" and top inch less at 38-5/8". Anyone have any idea of what make/model windshield I need to look for?

There are only two types of frames on the DS models as far as I know. A straight side frame, and a "bent" side frame that starts to taper in about halfway up. Look up pics, the difference is drastic and obvious.
Order the windshield that matches yours.
They changed around 01, but the older style straight frames were still used on some industrial and turf/maintenance models for quite a few years.

17 year old cart, so someone may have gotten “creative” with it along the way. Old style DS windshield measures 39 1/4” wide top & bottom. Might be just right for bars with that 39 5/8” outside measurement, since there is a slight allowance for the plastic holders. What have you got for a roof? Might have pinched the top of the windshield frame in to fit a aftermarket roof?

The folks I have spoke with on the phone stated the old type was the same with top and bottom. When I told them mine was 1 inch wider at the bottom, they seemed to think that was a problem. At this point, I am starting to believe they simply did not know and suspect my measurements are good for the older style. Thanks

One thing that's odd with the Lynx is... it seems that Club car uses whatever they have laying around!

On the left... a friends 2004 Lynx (new style black struts and canopy)
On the right... my 2007 Lynx (old style aluminum struts and canopy)

Both were bought brand new...

I have the same frame measurements on my 2007 DS. I can't seem to find the right windshield (I only find the two types for bent and straight frame).

Which did you end up putting on?

I went ahead and got the straight model...... without offset, made it work.

The DS front roof struts changed shape in 2000.5 There should be 2 windshield styles, 82 up to 2000.5, and another 2000.5 to current. I have seen people use Precedent frames on a DS to accommodate a canopy, and possibly that is what could be on the lynx...
