Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. My name is Steve and i am the lucky owner of a John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. I built her over three years with the help of my father, father-in-law and two children. She was launched in August 2007 at Queen Anne's battery marina in the barbican area of Plymouth. This blog is a record of our voyages together around SW England.
Arwen has a YouTube channel of her own. Search "plymouthwelshboy".

Fitting vespa mirrors

and there's another thing bugging us too. How do  you fit these vespa mirrors to the handlebars so that they are positioned in a way that can actually show what is behind you? 


So far, we've positioned them twice on the brackets and all we get is a reflection of ourselves sitting on the scooter or a reflection of the floor.


The mirrors themselves do not pivot on their support rods.....so getting them adjusted is a real fiddle or maybe we are just being really dim!
