50 bucks for those is a ripoff. They're not even real chrome... just plastic coated with chrome paint...

Bummer. At least you weren't injured. Mirrors are a pretty easy replacement.

Are you sure? Some of those chrome plastic cover things hold up pretty well.

Hey what can I say, he's a teenager....

I'm not riding the bike like that, i just put it on there when I took the broken mirror off, no more no less!

So you've seen those mirrors before in chrome/plastic?

I haven't saw those mirrors... but I have saw lots of Kury parts on HDs. Like chrome engine covers and such. And they are mounted right on the motor and tranny...subject to that intense heat. They last just fine!

I didn't say they wouldn't work or hold up, I was just saying 50 bucks plus shipping is a ripoff... I would consider half that a decent deal...
