Default ape hangers..and mirrors

hello everyone ...

In the process of building my 2001 Velousia.. not sure what its gonna look like or what to call it yet,,, anyways..

Ape hangers have been installed with internal wiring .. My question is, im looking at putting on some reversible mirrors but not sure what is available or should i say what looks cool.. I have a bobber,euro, retro, modern thingy going on with the bike.. not sure what direction its gonna go..

if anyone has a setup they would like to share.. please feel free

Also BIG thanks to T-man403.. risers are perfect...


Winter is almost here... let the Metric Mayhem commence!!!!

Nothing like the feel of ape hangers ......By reversible do you mean you wanna hang them upside down? That would look cool but not sure if it's possible with our mirror set up. Here's a pic of mine with 16"apes. Not really the same look as your going for, more of an old style gangster look.

The white walls are Maxxis Classics.

When these tires wear out I'm gonna get either Metz. or Avon since it's getting hard to find Maxxis wide whitewalls anymore and those are the only other two brands that make the white wall as wide as Maxxis. The Metz. you ordered should look just like mine, they'll look good. Yes, that's a 2 1/2" drop in the rear end.
