Default Need Cool Mirrors

Wanting to replace OEM mirrors with something cool. Have seen chrome Ness Rad III with either billet or steel stems. Is there a big difference in billet or steel stems besides price? Want mirrors that add coolness without sacrificing function. I use my mirrors a lot and will not give up safety. Also Kuryakyn skeleton mirrors, chrome arms and hands with black mirrors. What do y'all have for mirrors (show pics) and what are you paying for coolness? Thanks, God Speed.

I put on the skeleton mirrors with chrome hand and black mirror. Looks great and mirror quality was very good.

I have black Ness Rad III's. They look cool, big enough to use well, easy to adjust, plus tinted

you can use any h-d mirror on your bike as long as you get the metric adapter

I was going to say the same. Don't limit yourself on "metric" mirrors when you can just get HD to metric adapters

The only problem with the adapter is makes the mirrors a good 1/2 taller and it's usually a ugly looking adapter...

I was looking at getting these in chrome. I go to the ness website and they show fits HD (PN for HD and Vic is the same, too). Is there an adapter that is needed for these or do they come with both sets of hardware?

Ness has parts for victory goto arlenness.com then click victory. Here is what I have in chrome
http://shop.arlenness.com/p-2201-rad...em-chrome.aspx

But you can get from Victory too I'm pretty sure. Plus my dealer offers me discount for buy bike there. Plus all warranty stuff can go through them. Not that I need that, but nice to know. I love these mirrors. I had the micro sweeps. The were to small and moved all the time. Plus the die cast could never tighten. I like this size better and the steel tube style. Plus they are slightly righted. Cool look. The micros looked good on my chopper but the rad iii looks great on the XC
