New Aftermarket Mirrors from China

Fairing Factory in China is making replacement mirrors for the LT. On ebay they are selling for $299 for a PAIR of mirrors.

Has anyone tried these? I know many on the forum are looking for mirrors.

Re: New Aftermarket Mirrors from China

I seem to remember a thread on these in the last few months. Don't remember if anyone had tried them though.

That wuz Tom Ress, back on the 12th of Aug, who saw an eBay listing of those (I guess the same ones, cuz I haven't checked 'em both out yet).

The listing is finished and it sez they pulled $299.

eClick for eBay. Sure did look good on the eBay listing, butt I think they're limited in color selection.

We need to convince David Kinsey to become a distributor for these...then paint them to match all the colors and resell them individually.

The website says they are looking for distributors.
