My Lizzie has genuine Harley Davidson mirrors mounted where the upper hinge pins used to be. They almost look like they belong there.

If I'd been thinking about looking more 'original' I should probably bought the round ones.

I still have a couple of the brackets in case anyone is interested.

They're much heavier than a garage door handle. :-)

This is a mirror on my 25 Coupe. It clamps over the door hinge. Would love to find a matching one for the other side. I may have to make one at some point.

I have hinge pin mirrors on both of my cars 24 Fordor and 26 Coupe but they won't work on a car with the hinge at the back of the door, Mikes bracket looks like the way to go.

I don't know if this would work with suicide doors or not. It's hard on the paint.

I took one of those door edge clipons, removed the base and made a small rectangular plate to replace it. Glued on some rare earth magnets- it stays put on the window frame very well. The head vibrates loose before the mirror arm moves. Works great at "T" speeds but I wouldn't try it on the freeway! And best of all, no holes drilled in the body.

Now, there's a heck of an idea. :-)

I also opted for a pair of Harley-Davidson mirrors. I drilled holes in the A-posts and screwed in some brass inserts I picked up a local woodworking store. The mirrors simply screwed into the insert.

These offer mounting options and appear vintage. They have convex mirrors but from previous a post I understand this cures fuzziness from vibrations. Also available in black.
