    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! :nod :thumb

    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. :1drink

    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! :lol3


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

    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
