I think Craig Vechorik sells them - forgot the name of his shop... ah! Benchmark Works. I like them because the mirrors are replaceable, unlike some other expensive OEMs I won't mention.

In truth, Napoleons aren't as "refined" as the Alberts, but they're not really much bigger. I know because I just sold my laast pair of Alberts last year.

Try Benchmark Works. He has the correct copies of headlight mirrors, anyway. I didn't know the bar-ends copies were available,,,

Last time I checked w/ Vech, the bar end's weren't quite ready.

Trust cheap Guzzi riders to know all about it.
