Can anyone identify this mirror which I picked out of a skip.

The mouldings read D 47-66-00-515 and G R.

I don't know, but according to this it's an old timer. :wink:

Thanks Bud, I meant to Google it myself first; the English translation doesn't reveal anything either but €60 sounds useful. (That's 60 Euros).

But what does it fit? I think it's from a motorcycle or side-car but a neighbour running English bikes doesn't recognise it.

Je se crois aussi, Geni, mais pour quel véhicule?

[geni: The ends of the base form the pivots for the sun-visors!
Meg: I think so too, but for which vehicle?]

Possibly a late 50's VW Beetle - I seem to remember that they had a similar arrangement.

Thank you C42 and grassyknowlledge, there must be hundreds of them around still. I wonder if they were in the vans, too, we have a renter of them locally.
