What about getting bar end mirrors for it? That would look cool too. I think you might have to look for universal mirrors that have the handle bar clamp on their ends instead of perch studs to hang them upside down.

Upside down mirrors......

I'll reserve commenting until I see a photo of them on the bike.

Still.... Seems like you'd get a better view of your elbows than what's behind you...

One could also use two left side mirror mounts and turn the hole to the bottom.
But it would take some work to make them work.

Work? You mean turning it 180 degrees on the left? The mirrors would not be symmetrical as the one on the right would have to be farther in to clear the master cylinder. The only work there is pulling the stuff off the bars on the right to get the mount on first.

Bar ends sound like a better solution to me...........
