mirrors where to buy

My ride partner has a similiar bike to mine, ceptin mine s a late 2003 RS, his is a tad earlier. His bike is a shitty dark blue, whilst mine is a lovely lighter blue, Arctic blue I think. But the big problem is he has the older round mirrors, mine are more oval.

This mirror problem is starting to affect him most adversely. He is obviously feeling inferior and becoming quite psychotic. I understand he has been trying to buy replacement mirrors but the cost is around $240, and he is as tight as a fishes bum when it comes to dollars. I have checked in the UK for him, not available.! Any one there got any ideas as to locating these mirrors, at preinflationery prices?

Pretty sure I have a pair of K1200RS mirrors.. I'll have a look in the shed.

Be nice if you did. He will be around her this afternoon as he has shares in my beer fridge.

Scratch that, can't do attachments in PM's. Found the mirrors, I had this set mounted to my Rockster, it you look at the base piece of mirror (near the metal post) you'll see one is fractionally shaved back, this piece can be obtained seperately, makes no difference to the mounting, I did it because on the Rock is was close to the kill switch.

Let me know if he's interested.
