Wondering if anyone has come across or knows of a conversion kit to move the front flashers on my 1990/1500 Interstate from the fairing out onto the mirrors, simular to the newer 1800 style. The idea is to paint over the originals or have chrome covers made but need help to either see what others may have done or start the kit myself if need be. Any assistance would be appreciated....................

I think it safe to say .... you can be thepioneer on this one, the one that others look to as the leader even?

Could you purchase a set of mirrors for an 1800 and install them on your bike?

Thanks for the response, never know until ya ask. Sounds like I am back to the drawing board with this one but winters are long in Canada and if not riding well second best idea is dreaming

Ye thought of that but had hoped to keep the original mirror design. Just need an old set of mirrors and a bit of down time and see what I can come up with. Never know, could be something others might look at but if not well there is always the option to go back to the original look..........Appreciate the thoughts

Will do but it appears it may take a trip to the drawing board and then off to have a mould madeup. Good winter project..............

I'ld say there's room in there for an LED array, maybe able to adapt some "Superbrightleds"? Use quick disconnects for those times the mirrors have to come off.

for forward facing I would use any small amber light...aftermarket...and attach it

to the bottom of the mirror housing...my 2 cents

Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!

Cheers for the web site and idea. Looking at a set of LED's off a2010 Toyota Land Cruiser, may be a bit long though. Unfortunately deployed over in AFG these days so all will have to wait until I get back to Cdn.
