After googling I found out about Acrylic Cement. Guys use it to make fish tanks out of acrylic and it works well.

I bought IPS Weldon 5 Oz 16 Acrylic Cement

It worked pretty well. It doesn't really act like glue, it acts more like a weld. I used it on the 2 broken windshields and I can now flex them without re-cracking them. I haven't taken a ride with them yet, but they seem to be good.

Can you post some pics?
Prices fluctuate quite a bit on that stuff! A quick online search reveals Wal-Mart wanting $21 for the 5 oz tube. but can get it online for under $8 plus shipping.
