Just curious if anyone has tried or has installed the Hella Bar End Signals to their Vincent machine ? Thanks, Alyson

I used Oberon bar end signals on a Vincent special. Those are available with a little extension piece that allows for use of bar end mirrors as well.
The finished product looks and works well on that bike.
I'm not sure it would look right on a standard Vincent. Maybe the Hellas would be better suited for this, but I can't see an easy way to mount those along with some type of bar end mirrors. The Napoleon bar ends look quite nice on a Vincent, but it's one or the other, can't do bar end mirrors and Hella bar end signals. Well not easily.
The bar end signals are a good thing, right out there at the widest point of the bike, visible fore and aft.

Are you using standard Vincent bars or Magura/BMW ? I have the bar end signals on my /2 so I'm aware of fitment, slots at end and hole in middle, if using Vincent bars how was the slide in fit ? Thanks, Alyson
Normal Vincent bars.I drilled a small hole in the centre of the bars between the clamps to feed the wires through a grommet. IMAG0048.JPG

Len, can I ask you what clamp-on bar-end mirror you're using?
Looks a good set up.
Thanks

It's an MZ mirror.They are (or used to be) available both left and right.To fit you need to move the twistgrip inwards about 1/2". An end plug from a cycle shop will finish the job.
BTW, I have a spare one but it needs a new glass.

I could cut you a piece of glass but you wouldn't be able to see behind you ;) or I could cut you
a piece of mirror. I'm a glazier by trade. If you can send me a pattern, I can cut. Just draw it out on a piece of paper and mail. If you have both sides, I can make you a left and right.

Yes, certainly, Peter, but for me no factor as I no longer drive at night. Or in rare occasions I operate the brake light like a flash light for alerting any traffic. Maybe I´d go for the tiny LED flashers mounted in hidden places as not to be a cosmetic matter on a classic.
