If they are made by neopolian they are most likely well built... but why replace ugly mirrors with ugly mirrors??? If you are doing the swap go with CRG or neoplian bar end mirrors. I have used both and they both look good and work good. The CRG mirrors are about $65 each the neoplian bar end mirrors can be found for around $25-$35 each.

I got a pair of the third eye bike mirrors at the bike store and LOVE them. They are very simple mirrors that plug into the handlebar ends. You can see very well out of them and are cheap.

I think they'll look a hell of a lot better than the stock Micky Mouse crap the bike come with.

I bought some bicycle bar end mirrors and the radically clean up the look of the bike. [smiley=applause.gif] They also work a heck of a lot better. Go with the cheapo bicycle mirrors or the CRG's. You won't regret it. Those Ebay mirrors look pretty fugly.

I'm biased since I own a pair but I really love the monstrack mirrors. You give up a bit of vertical viewing but gain a better horizontal view. I find I can see right behind me with just a little arm jiggle. Bar end mirrors might off the best view but I just dont like the way they look.

I second this -- I have the Monstracks and dig them. You have to do a little work to see behind you, but not too much. The bar end mirrors are cool and I'm sure they are effective, but one of my favorite things about the Monster is how narrow it is (the better to lane-split, my dear), and the bar end mirrors increase the width of the bike. If you're in a state where lane-splitting is illegal, however, maybe that isn't a real consideration.

We didn't think it was so narrow when trying to put it in between 2 HD's on our trailer...there was no way it was gonna squeeze in there, those stock pipes stick way out!!!

Maybe the problem wasn't the Duc -- maybe is was those chubby ol' harleys! ;)
