rear view mirror part3
Having cleaned up the rather crubby dipping rear view mirror that I picked up from David Pearson at Canley Classics recently I thought I would try fixing it to the stem. Unfortunately as you can see from the pictures getting the mirror attached to the stem will not be easy. The ball on the end of the stem is too small to pop into the mirror head. On a normal non-dipping Vitesse mirror the ball on the end of the stem is held in a threaded cap which screw fits to a male threaded part on the head.
