Default Slim rectangle mirrors (with photos)

These are inexpensive mirrors that I'm trying out. The stock mirrors were beat and I wanted something to mount underneath. At $17 for the pair, they're disposable if they don't work out.

Construction is like a small automotive windshield mounted mirror. They give a wide view horizontally, but not too much vertically. The mirror has a blue tint. The optics are ok. They are better optically when looking more directly into them (as they would be mounted over the bars )


Here is the link. (Cool looking over drag bars)

I offered them $15, they countered at $17 and I accepted the counter.







They came with a bunch of adapters that are useless for a Sportster. I mounted the mirrors with 8mm X 45mm socket head bolts.

Nice score, they look good and it beats looking back at your shoulders.

I rode in traffic with the mirrors today. I have to get used to looking down on this bike, but am pleased with them. Visibility is much better for lane changes. I always looked over my shoulder before, but I’m seeing traffic better now.
