could you post pictures of you old and new mirrors. My first though would be yes but I am unfamiliar with the mirrors on both years Wing.

With duct tape and bailing wire, anything could fit on your Wing.:eek:

If they are the whole mirror assembly I would say yes. If I recall right, 84 was the only year the 1200's mirrors were lower than all the other years.

ok the first photo is the set of 1984 mirrors its the whole assembly and the second is the stock 87 1200 mirror assembly. I do plan on buying a new set of the stock but the 84's where basically free. I also want to use the 84 mirrors to play around with doing some customization before i turn around and try applying it to the stock ones once i get them.

Hi it is hard to tell from the pictures but can you hold up the two different mirrors to see if the bolt patterns match up? if you can get at least two bolts on I would say they would work for temp use.

Don't know why Honda did a change on the mirrors after '84, rest of the bike is all identical. Ditto on what Crownfire says; not sure how far you'd be from fossil's place if you're in Mass.:confused:

eric that is the part i need yes it is. as for how far from fossil i am about 6 hrs and 30 min away or in millage 355 or so. if i planned it right I might be able to do it but have to plan it just right and make sure its a pay week end or I'm porked. Yes I know its just under a tank their and a tank back but I have to make sure i can afford a place to crash for the night. My friend with the bike camper is away on a cross country trip from RI to California and through Canada. So i cant borrow that. unless I pack a tent Hmmmmmmm

So I got the new old mirrors in and put them on after cleaning them up now I have a new problem. I kind of like them better then the stock set you tell me what looks better. here is a pic of them before the stock right was broken and one with the new old mirrors.

I like the looks of the 1984 mirrors better, but which ones are easier to see behind you?

The all black mirrors look good it darkens up the front end some.
The other pair looks like they belong better. either way is good.
