    Well, since I'm temporarily of a job right now, I have some free time. So I made a couple little mods to my bike. First was I needed a mirror. I went to the store and all they had was these things.


    It was cheap in price and design. So I bought it and made it better. I used the handle bar mount and then used some aluminum rod and made a longer arm for it. It works really well and doesn't vibrate much at all, I can see quite well with it. (you can even see me taking the picture in it! LOL)


    My next project is a little silly, but it only cost $2 so I said "What the heck, why not?" So I made a little bracket and mounted this,


    Well, that's all I got for now. It's amazing what you can get done when your bored. :grin5:

    I went long so I could see over my shoulder with the mirror. It gives me a really good view of what's coming up.

    that mirror mod is excellent. I went with online order of some scooter mirrors. I think it cost me nearly $35.00 after shipping. But you've got something pretty similar at a fraction of that.

    good job.

    Yeah, after buying the mirror and the aluminum rod, I have a total of $5.75.

    If anyone else wants to do this, all you have to do is get the mirror and 3/8" rod. The end of the rod that goes into the mirror is 1/4" so you have to grind it down.
