Thanks for the positive comments

Front turn signals are Ebay ones
rear turn signals are Rizoma
mirrors are ebay items. they were designed to bolt to handle bars bit i modified them to bolt straight to the original mounts.
rear vision with these mirrors is restricted by your arms but they keep the cops of your back.

SWEET!

Thanks for posting more pics - that's awesome.

I love my RD's, but I have been drooling over RZ's for years.
