  • A solution to the lack of mirrors without side curtains?

    I perfer to drive without the side curtains, but the lack of side mirrors is bugging me. Has anyone found a solution? I saw one solution on a seven--a bicycle mirror mounted on a pin that fit in the side curtain hindge. Any other ideas or solutions out there?

    Side Mirrors

    The side mirrors of my Birkin are attached to the screen stanchions. I think these are actually Yamaha trail bike mirrors. You can see it here:

    I know that Tom Jones (from the USA Sevens List) is trying to organize a group buy of carbon fiber mirrors, see here:

      Forgot something

      Just noticed something looking at the pics: You can not open the sidescreens 180 degrees like usual with a Caterham when you have the mirrors like my car. But that did not bother me so far.

        side mirrors

        Rick Longden @ [email protected] in Manchester, UK makes side mirrors for the Seven using the side screen mounts.

          I try not to drive without the side curtains, but I do put them on in the rain. So I do need another solution. I do drive around with the perspex wind deflectors, so both hindges are taken. Any other solutions out there?

            side mirrors

            The side mirros from SevenAccessories at UK allows you to mount the mirrors together with the wind deflector.

                side mirrors

                All,

                I am working with a company in Taiwan to get some side mirrors that are a replica of the SPA carbon fiber mirrors.

                Here is the link to the mirrors. The mirror we are ordering is the
                GPM02.

                I am thinking of making a mount like the one here:

                http://www.sevenselans.com/images/CFMirror_1.JPG

                http://www.sevenselans.com/images/CFMirror_3.JPG

                ...but the mirrors don't come with this mount. They only come with the ball joint (with two mounting holes).


                The mirrors should be about $50/pair. If you have any interest I need to know immediatly.

                  Tom,

                  Sign me up for a pair.

                  If the original mounts sucks too badly, I'll probably machine something better.

                    Hi Tom, I did not know that you were THE Tom Jones from other mail group buying the mirrors. Seems these nicknames do have a disadvantage....

                    Anyway, I hope you have me on your list as interested.

                      mirrors without side curtains.

                      I got my mirrors from Seven Accessories. They fit well and are just what I was looking for. Thanks for the information.





                      If it wan't for Seven Accessories it would be curtains for us all!

                        I do not have a chance to use my side mirrors from Seven Accessories yet. They are sitting in the garage. It is still too cold here in Houston for driving without the side curtins in the morning. Thanks for telling me that they work well.
