Definitely looks wide at the bars, but I liked the clear view they give. Not sure if they will vibe too bad or not. I think they compliment they W style well. There are black ones available too, but the chrome seems a better match for a stockish bike. Not sure they are still making them. Not too many places sell them anymore (genuine Napoleons are "Baren" labeled). I found these on ebay new.
I also have those mirrors on my bike. You can turn the mirrors 180 degrees so the wider part is on the inside. They still work fine for me like that, and give a much narrower look, and better for lane splitting.

As far as the tail light with a stock fender, my True Value hardware store carries chrome carriage bolts that fit and look original for the 2 bottom holes. I stuck a vintage looking aluminum Lucas style tail light on it, and used the chrome bolts for the bottom holes.
