Sleeping beauty's extra set of eyes. Can you spot the fake?

So I want to keep her as original as possible. Problem with the mirrors is the rubber boots were all cracked and dry. The cheapskate that I Am, I went ahead and purchased a clone and decided to try and rebuild the other.
Can you spot the fake?? Btw, I spent at least 2hrs rebuilding the rubber boot, and although it's not perfect, I don't think she minds too much. She did whisper " cheapskate" when I finished though :cry:

the only difference between the two I can find is the one on the right has a more tinted glass than the one on the left.

Not too many ladies like to see their rears anyway! So as long as they are functional, and give you a heads up when riding her, I think she will approve :D

Since the left boot looks PERFECT, I'd say the left is fake.
Either way, nice clone & rebuild.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

Yes, the left one is the clone and I believe I bought it from flee bay . Cyclemax has the set but not individuals.
