    I am looking for an original mirror for a 73 commando. I want to put one on the right side that will match my original left side mirror. Rectangle shape made of stainless steel with no rubber around the glass, chromed stem. If anyone should have one collecting dust in their shed or garage, please let me know.
    I'm not really interested in the chrome ones with the rubber around the glass or the triangled shape one as sold by AN.
    So if anyone has one after installing bar end mirrors or dropdowns or whatever, let me know.
    Thanks

    I have a spare, but it will need a new glass. You can have it for postage since I have 3 and only need 2.

    I am surprised the TEX ViewMaster's are not for sale on a regular basis,used or other wise. I think TEX on their website still list a mirror for that body (but don't hold it against me if wrong)

    https://texautomotive.com/index.html

    They still list some nice mirror's that could be used on original stems.

    I do rehash the same photo's but looked for NOS mirrors for years off and on and never recall even seeing used one's then this NOS pair came up on local eBay with a asking price of $100 (US$70) and count myself lucky to have them even if modern mirrors are better.

    I bought a pair of modern replacements from Lineslinger and he gave me two older originals to boot. I already had one and the glass was shot or broken in all three. There's a thread on here somewhere about replacing the glass and a source (TEX) of the part.

    I think i looked at their site, couldn't find anything that matched. If they did it was in chrome. Then I would have to buy 2 of them to keep them matched. Thanks for your reply.

    Ok..Give me a minute with this image stuff.
    [​IMG] Little bit of rust started & faint haze to mirror. If you want it you can have it for I've moved on to some 10 mm replicas. Only stem is chromed.
