Anyone using bar end mirrors on their mid 60's triumph? If so what brand, do they work well and any issues mounting them?

Yes, I've been using them for a long time, no issues, Napoleon Bar End mirrors, you can get them from dealers or find them on Amazon, black or chrome. Big image, but beware of imitations which give a fun-house image. Be sure to tighten them now and then. I lost one on the highway a couple of years ago, so now I check them before I go out.

On the BSA, I use the cheap CRG knock-offs, seem to work all right, e-bay and Amazon have them. The glass is kind of small, buy I got used to it, you just have to know where to look. This kind can clamp around the end of the bar rather than use internal expanders for mounting.

get the CRG style-- the wrap-around clamp is much nicer than the various el cheapo expanding plugs. i have a set of CRG hindsight lanesplitters on my T120, and once you get them positioned, they're just as useful as the big standard-style.

do NOT overtighten the allen screws . . .

On my TR5Ts I use mountain bike round mirrors---the type with a couple of adjustable joints so you can get the mirror in exactly the right position.
They fix by expanding into the bar end.
Cheap too--I think I paid about $20 for them--I use just one per bike on the LHS.

It looks like the expander that holds the mirror in the bar end is all metal, 'way better than the rubber plug of some others.
