Nice bit of machining there, looks like you have access to a CNC Mill.
I paid a similar compliment to someone on this forum a long time ago only to be told "no I did it all on my lathe".
As a retired machinist I love to see this sort of skill.
Thanks for posting.

Mirror raisers

Thanks all. Yes they were made on a CNC, a 5 axis one at that. Mostly 3+2 machining with a bit of 5 axis simultaneous for the upper and lower chamfers. They've been glass beaded and are off to the platers for hard black anodising. Will post more pictures when they're back.

Those are beautimous! Any thoughts of making up a batch to sell? I've got to do something on mine - have to pull in my elbows to see behind me.

I can't stand the mirror placement on the handle bars.. I know I'm not the only one who has to lean back and tilt my head to see anything useful out of them. They're wayyy too close for the bar positioning. Would love a solution like this
