Greenchilli how are those bar ends? Weighty enough?
Which size mirror? (60 or 75mm) and which fits? The 7/8" or the 1"?
I was looking at the Halcyons but think the Oberons come in cheaper.

Oh, lovely ride by the way, tail looks neat and I love the maroon/cream models.

Yeah, sweet!  Now just switch out those front signals, an easy job, to match the bullets on the rear, and you'll be the envy of all - well, most!

Thanks for the nice comments! I'm really enjoying owning and working on this bike.
They were the M8 bolt 75 mirrors and they fitted really well.
Agree I need to change the front indicators and I must admit I do want a pedestrian splitter but I'm not keen on drilling into the mudguard!
Disconnected the kick-stand switch too as it was easy and I never liked not being able to start the engine on the side stand.

Mine would start on the sidestand, but as soon as I took the weight off it, it would quit.

Where'd you score the Oberons from? Looking direct at their website for the M8 75mm...my turn to copy you!
Postage reasonable timeframe?

Bought direct from Oberon - delivery 6 days but not cheap as I went for the insured/tracked option at about $60 rather than standard $20ish. But figured buy once and pay for it once!

I installed the Ace Air Canister on my bike.  Haven't done the exhaust or jets yet so no noticeable gains in SOTP feel.  What I did notice though was a smoother and more stable idle.  Prior to putting this on I would have sworn that the bike was tip-top, but listening to it breath through this setup it is noticeably better.   8)

So they are back in full production? It matches your bike perfectly and Ace originally  constructed it in such a way that it retains a period look.  I prefer the black  vice the original stainless production and you now have the added plus of not worrying about the sun radiation bouncing off and melting a hole on your leg   ;D...Everyone that has one seems to like them and they do look fantastic...Enjoy..
Oh Magoo you done it again

GM, All I know is that I emailed Tom on the side and got him to make one for me.  Since they're not available here in Nfield Gear anymore I handled my shopping experience on the side.  I will say that Tom's customer service is as top notch as the product :-)

And yes, I too think it matches the bike perfectly  8)
