Buggy Mirrors

Postby Mongrel » Tue Sep 15, 2009 3:29 pm

Thought this may as well go in this section as it is a detail...

Wondering what you guys think about the best mirrors to use on a buggy. Do the sleek plastic / rubber Car ones work OK or do they move over the rough terrain? Am I better off with some from a Bike? If so anyone got a preference?

There are plenty available on Evil Bay but I thought I would ask 1st...

I was just going to polish up the back of my chrome spotlights until I dinged the LHS one :wink:

We have found that sports bike mirrors work best.
They tend to put up with vibration better, look great too.
We use GSXR mirrors.

Are the chow ones worth the hassle or can they be sourced locally?
