Lange's does not have any and Snyder's does not have them listen in the catalogue.

Heads up if intent on using one of the large square mirrors on your touring Bob. Not disparaging this fine product from Bob's, its an excellent unit when applied to a robust mounting. This is a heavy assembly where wind force and/or bumping this can distort the frame enough to crack the windshield glass. I had this happen twice on a brass Rands windshield before I replaced this with a lighter gauge rig.
Regards,
Scott

Not trying to hi-jack thread, but I am trying to locate a pair (2) of the OVAL mirrors.
Don't want the rectangular.
Thanks,
Bob

I've been using a large, rectangular mirror on my '14 Touring for about 5 years and have not had any problem or cracks, etc. with it.

Jerry,
Both Restoration Supply and Langs are out of stock on the OVAL ones. Did not ask about RECTANGULAR but Bob has those.

Bob

I got my oval ones from Chaffin. They are very nice BUT my advice is to take apart the mirror and remove the glass then pour in some epoxy into the pressed brass sheetmetal to give it added strength. During the stamping process there is some very thin areas that can crack during driving with normal vibration.
