I bought mine from a guy on another site who made them, all powder-coated in matching black. They are a very basic item, really, mine were sturdy metal, an oblong tab that just screws into the original mirror location, and then the mirror attaches at the other end of the oblong tab, putting them out wider. One of those brilliant little things you kick yourself for not inventing yourself. But then, until I put them on, I never realized how much of a difference they would make in my rear view. Definitely gives me a safer panoramic rear view. I know of others who have gotten similar results with different mirrors. But I like the stock mirrors,a nd love that 2 little pieces of metal do the same thing.

As for carrying loads on a scooter: Youtube is full of videos of scooters of all provenance loaded up, down, sideways, and some ways that cannot be described, full of goods and people up to the gills, and they are motoring down ? streets, or goat paths without any kind of trouble whatsoever. So I have no doubt that the Swing can handle its own weight and whatever else you choose to load it with. The bigger question is: how long before the traffic cops (if not fellow roadusers) pull you over and issue a summons for ?unusual roadcraft not licensed for the purpose.
But if you can get away with it, I'll build a camper behind the driver's seat.

Bigtrain- if making a silverwing ugly was an olympic sport your definitely bringing home the gold medal. Maybe two gold medals one for the "backrack" and one for the "muppets backrest".      Razz
