Handguard/mirror setup

When I first picked up this bike used, the kid before had these dinky mirrors zip tied on the bars near the triple clamps. It looked jerry rigged, they vibrated like crazy, and you couldn't see anything behind you. They were pointless...

Bought some cheapie mirrors. They worked, but couldnt stay put for more than a day. One cracked, and they were pretty tiny



My hands were also freezing for my morning commutes. This is the idea...



Some bar end mirrors from amazon, and some cycra pro bends.

The bar end mirrors have a inner sleeve. To add some more rigidity, I drilled out the center so the handguard insert would press in







To mount the handguard, I went with these tusk pieces, instead of the spendy cycra ones. They fit just fine



All done. They fit perfectly and theyre slightly concave, so you actuslly have a great field of view

Looks as if you were the "Jerry rigger" yourself. Nice job. I give you my official seal of approval.
