left mirror base is broken

Post by SteveSS »



Does anyone have any intel on where I can find a replacement left side mirror base? Does anyone offer an aftermarket solution? I found one on ebay for an '84, but it's not the same as the broken one on my '87. I've spent two days searching now and haven't been able to turn one up.

the price of the base is less than $14.00 if you can find one. i have a friend that owns a motorcycle salvage yard, i can call him tomorrow to find out if he has a left side mirror and or a base that still attached and unbroken to one of the bikes he has. i'll let you know when i find out. you might have to purchase the entire mirror to get the base from it. let me see what i can do.

I appreciate that link. I'm still out of luck. The part is discontinued by Honda. Hopefully the post above yours can yield a result at the salvage yard.

I broke my right one. But I replaced both mirrors. This one should be the left. check the picture close.
$25 + shipping if the one you need. From my 85 Aspencade.

I'm about 15 miles west of Jefferson City in a small town called Russellville. I think I have this one all sorted out now. Thanks for the assist.

Parted out bikes in Vancouver BC Canada. Straightwings.com - it has a left and right backing plate - $17.70 USD plus shipping I would imagine.

Hey SteveSS, listen, im sorry i wasn't able to get in touch with my buddy up at the salvage yard today, i wound up at the veterans hospital since 6am this morning and i just got home. it was a nightmare trying to drive 185 miles each way with one good eye. some how some of the blood vessels in my right eye hemoraged and i have blood bleeding behind my eye. i have no vision in my right eye for now thanks to millions of tiny black specks which is the blood leaking behind my eye, and my doctor said this might last for a few weeks before it clears up IF it clears up at all. if it's not better by mid april when i see him next, (no pun intended), i might have to have eye surgery....again to evacuate the blood from my eye, so it looks like i wont be doing any riding, or much of ANYTHING anytime soon :(.

i'll give them a call tomorrow and find out about the left mirror for you.

Parted out bikes in Vancouver BC Canada. Straightwings.com
I just looked at all of the reasonably priced stuff this site has. Not sure how much different the freight costs would be, but it has some great stuff for sale!
