Yes, you can find them in the Royal Enfield Online Store... and the bar-end mirrors were just inexpensive basic black ones from Cycle-Gear, found them for like 30 bucks U.S... They actually work great, and are about a hundred less than some fancy ones I was looking at online.  Also, if you look close, the Right Rear lower Shock Nut had vibrated off... found very strange thread patterns and detective work needed to find right fitment... I now regularly use a spanner before rides, and use Locktite on a couple nuts, especially after almost having my exhaust come off!...lol... It's all part of the fun though...Cheers!

That is just awesome.  Good for you man.  The number plate is fantastic.

So they are RE bars... but not Ace bars, correct?  And how about those mirrors too?

Very, very nice ride.  It looks amazing.

I don't know how the fairing would fit- all I can relate to is this- what you see here took a "LOT" of fabricating to make work... It was not "bolt-on out of the box"!... and according to Encore Performance, even the different R.E. models accept their hop-up parts differently...   The beauty is, virtually every attempt at a custom cafe-type bike is a one-of-a-kind!...

Is this setup compatible with the cafe fairing at the Enfield Store?  Or does that require ace bars or similar?

Very nice looking bike. It looks fast just sitting still!

Thanks!... They're actually Royal Enfield Bars...  It was hard finding any clip-ons to clear the tank, so even though these aren't very radical, they do work, and create a comfortible riding position...  My favorite mod was shedding the black twinkie pegs- I found Harley made these billet pegs with proper male ends- I only had to grind them down a bit to fit with my dremel tool.

Very cool mods, keeping just enough of the original parts to complement the cafe racer kit.  I like that you left the stock front end alone in this case.  But what bars did you use?  They're not stock, and they're not clip-ons or ace bars... are those the late 1950's handlebars from hitchcocks?
