Reading Japanese is easy, it says...
"...provides instant 'baller' status and adds luck to driver in wooing pretty lady!"
Or something to that effect. I'm a bit fuzzy on that last part...

The magazine image is from the September issue of "Oldtimers" in Japan. The article talks about the new-old stock fender mirrors and from what I can gather, are for a Skyline (based on the shape). I only know of one person with them and the flowers themselves are different.
Holy poop on a stick.
I absolutely must get a pair of these for my Bellett!
Thanks for the link Sideglide!
Good luck on it! Old stock + Skyline + romantic Japanese styling = contract with the devil. I would start with the blog on Rakuten and see what the guy says. His blog makes it sound like he is obviously proud of them, even wondering if he wants to run them for the event he attended.
With some work you could probably custom vacuum form a pair of clear cones to combine with the actual mirrors and stems. 8)
I actually have a set of mirrors very similar to these off of my Corona Mark II from Japan... Mind you they do not have the the cherry blossoms painted on them but they are very cool mirrors, but I switched to stock mirrors.
These aren't "painted on", they are a clear body with flowers inside the mirror. :mrgreen:Originally Posted by theunstated
