Any tips on mounting a motorcycle mirror on the driver's side of my '26 Roadster?

It's considered a manly thing to use duct tape for everything ! Head wounds to bicycle repairs,
duct tape does it all ! :-)

Mark Perkins,

A picture of the mirror may help spur some reasonable ideas.

Mark,3" of duct tape would be sufficient to let it fall off at the first bump. I have yet to see a motorcycle mirror which did not look like a motorcycle mirror. I try to find something which looks correct for the period. They are available.

Just me on my pet hate.

What??? Our ideas aren't reasonable??? !!!!
But Dan is right, lots of ways to mount a side mirror on a '26, some don't even involve drilling a hole in your stanchion! Need some idea of how the mirror's original mount looks.

I have never been accused of anything so heinous as being "unreasonable" !!! 8^O

Ok, thread drift.
Yesterday at work we got in a BMW with a hole in the oil pan big enough to stick your fist in.
One of the guys patched it with duct tape, put in four qts. Of oil, started the engine and we all listened for a while and decided it would be worth the effort of replacing the oil pan without worrying about the rods and mains.
The tape was still holding when we left tonight.

Ok, not exactly a '26 roadster, but motorcycle mirrors mounted as hinge pins in this old thread: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/154212.html?1281636851

Here is how I mounted an old peep mirror on my 26.





It was later replaced with an original style mirror that the vendors sell.
