Straps for sidemount mirrors was created by Rlamb10769
Does anyone know of a source for leather straps that hold the mirrors on the sidemounts?
Thanks,

If you have an example just take it to a good saddle shop where they make saddles. But without a sample you may end up with something not so nice looking..

Usually me see three straps on L-29, not four.

Sidenote: when installed you may want to carefully glue something to the back of the strap that cannot be seen - so straps or whatever is glued on will not discolor the whitewall

Looks good with the 3 straps verses 4.

If you need new straps, you may want to look for a saddle shop (for horses) in your area or perhaps a farm implement store that deals in collars and harnesses for animals. Unfortunately, mirror manufacturers are few and far between theses days and there may actually be none currently - through 1970's to a year ago there was always someone (or two plus someones) making reproduction mirrors, but not now. Stan Gilliland at may carry them still though via older stock.
