Nope. But the metal for the bracket is so thin that I suspect it is homemade. Probably used some old windshield with a canvas bottom skirt and made that bracket you see mounted to the hack deck.

Unless there is some hidden support, I would expect the wind force to knock it down at any decent speed.

Before you say something stupid, always ask yourself, "What would Harpo say?".

+1
Sorry no help here but my first thought was also very cheap/flimsy set up even by Soviet standards so suspect homemade/reworked screen from another bike.
