Broken Mirror
« on: August 09, 2019, 10:05:54 pm »
My wife knocked over my 2002 Connie. Broke the right mirror, but not the housing. Do I need to spend $122 on a new mirror & housing,

or can I find replacements for the mirror itself? If so, how difficult is it to replace? Advice? Suggestions? Help?

G'day, How about getting one cut and then glue it in?

To be honest I was hoping for a connection to a glassmaker/mirror guy who could produce the product ... that I could buy.

redwing6 do you need a left or right mirror? I have spare parts and can sell and ship for half retail price for COG members.

If you still need it......
I've got a right mirror off a parts bike.
The glass is good.
The plastic housing is fair ( scratches / been repainted )
