This isn't really my Triumph, it is one I put together on the Triumph site. You can add or subtract different accessories that go on the bike you are trying to put together.

When you have finished you can keep a copy of the bike, so this is mine. Hacksaw and I did a few of them on Facebook.  I like them because I believe they are a good quality Medium size bike, not just a started bike.  Laugh

I did this one without the small fairing so I could see how the bike looked with this headlight cover. I don't know why I would use a cover like this, but it is offered as an accessiory on the Triumph site.

Maybe the cover is for trailering the bike.  Not that any of us would do that!

I thought maybe it was if you were following a bike or two down a gravel road. As far as trailering goes, there are lots of reasons to trailer. Whatever is handy suits me. Cool

I liked this color on the SE after adding the Fairing, knee pads, Grabrail and pipes.  Cool I would most likely have the stock mirrors on the bike because they would work for me better. But these mirrors look better from a side view.

interesting that Triumph doesnt list the bar end mirrors as an option for the T-100 in its create a Triumph web application.

but anywayz , i think they show upside down. they should be fliped and installed on opposite sides of the bike!

they look ok on the thruxton

I really like those Napolean style mirrors.

They actually work!

Black would look better IMO

That is a fun site. Built a Rocket III, then a Booneville - a little disapointed that I could not have the centerstand with my Arrow exhaust, but that is the price for performance!

you are right. what i would do if i thought the center stand was needed,  is run the arrow exhaust for the scrambler.
also the mirrors would look better black.  why do u call them  napoleons? do the bone apart after a while?  Laugh

its too bad they dont allow for cross breeding more parts between whats the same bonneville platform.

with all the combos  available, they are getting like harley, they still dont offer what i want in any particulr single model.

Note: In the pictures, the mirrors themselves need to be rotated 180 degrees

It' the brand I'm familiar with.

I would go with the stockers because I'm always checking what/whos behind me and one glance in the normal mirrors does it all for me. I also don't have room for extra wide mirrors but these endbar mirrors look best when added to the bikes on their site.. dj  Laugh

How about this Old Triumph of the Day. My old 1966 500, with the neighbor kid David and my Daughter Sharon sitting on the bike.
