I bought those mirrors from LMC. They look great and work great. No complaints at all.

Those are the kind used for, looking cool at where your going, not for seeing where you've been. As long as they do the job and compliment your ride, that's what matters.
Ok enough backwards thinking, time for thinking ahead.

I find they show enough of what's behind me. They're obviously no West Coast mirror but they do the job. It would be nice if the body wasn't so contoured so I could see where my wheels are while reversing, but such is life. My advice is to grab a buddy and spend a LOT of time placing the mirror on the door.

One of the reasons I want to go back with the original or repros is that I have the mounting holes and screws still in place on the doors in their original location but a previous owner at some point put tripod mirrors on it which I removed, just not my preference.
