Bronze bar end mirrors

Does anyone know what bar end mirror this is? This bar end mirror came on the used 919 I bought. The previous owner couldnt tell me the brand. I can't find any mirrors in bronze through Google. Since there is only one mirror on the bike im trying to buy the 2nd one without resorting to buying two brand new crg's in black.

They, most likely, started life as black anodized and have faded over the years...

Probably just the cheapie Bikemaster ones; we had some a guy return some where I work because they'd faded to bronze like that. I thought it was actually pretty cool looking, wish there were a way to do it evenly. (Take the mirrors to a tanning salon? Lol.)

I would think I would see some black left over but these are all bronze. I don't think it's ugly either.

If you want to tell for sure if they're bronze or faded take the mirror off the arm where the two little allen bolts attach it. If it's black underneath they faded, if it's bronze underneath they're bronze. It does look almost too uniform to be from fading though. I actually think they look nice

The inside of the clamp was indeed black. So yes they were the chinese bar end mirrors, faded from black to bronze. But the bronze looks pretty cool. I have since purchased two different mirrors, since I couldn't find any mirors that matched the bronze. So if anyone wants a single bronze bar end mirror, pm me.
