B&M mirrors for HP Velotechnik

Well I’ve already installed my first upgrade to my recumbent trike! B&M mirrors. These install in the place of the head caps that go on top of the front steering columns where the wheels attach.
All that was needed was an Allen wrench. Adjustment was done mostly after install.
These mirrors make a big difference. Sitting reclined makes it a bit hard to see behind you. With the mirror I can clearly see at least one and a half lanes over so I can safely change lanes without turning my head. Great quality of life upgrade. Later on I hope to add some turning signals and these look like a great candidate to hold some lights later!
Here are some photos. Looks like it belongs to the trike which is great.
