Which Bar End Mirrors are you running?

OK, So I'm wanting to put on some "Bar End" Mirrors on the R90. What are you guys running? I'm NOT wanting to drop alot of $$ on a pair, however I do wanna get something.......not too BIG, but juuuust right. Either black or a brushed aluminum in color. Where can I find some?.....and THANKS Very Much for your 2 cents!

Boojum!

Ken,

I am using the "Stadium Round" in polished SS, shown in the link below. The CRG round sounds like wht you are looking for, available in black and brushed. If I had known about the GRG mirrors, that's what I would of bought.

Scroll down the page to look at all the mirrors mounted on a variation of bikes.

Napolean. I've had them on my old /6 and my current Laverda. Fully adjustabile and you can fold them out of the way while in the garage and still have them return to their former position. About $30- $35 each and worth it. Don't bother with the cheapo Emgo or other crap. Google for dealers or search eBay.

I went snooping around on Flea-Bay and found some of those CRG Round Mirrors for HALF PRICE! $59 a pair, and with the mounting hardware to mount them inside the bars also. I think that web site wanted $18 each for the adaptors (each) as well. So, I may just order these off Flea-Bay!


**EDIT** OK, these mirrors were just down the road in ATL, so I ordered a pair! Oh Well,.....Farkles, Farkles, Farkles!

You could get a mirror head at a bicycle source, and fit it to your bar ends:

I had one of those CRG mirrors on a r65 cafe bike. They are very nice and work well. I think the Napoleans style are alittle more suited to a stock 70's bike, but that's just me, mostly. JT
