I did this. Its an old ford truck/van mirror and mount, a magnet w/ hook, small turnbuckle, ~8in of 3/8in threaded rod, and a wingnut. The door hinge pin keeps the top of it mounted, and the threaded rod connects to the lower hinge. The magnet allows it to pop off and fold into the door opening if its hit while moving forward, and keeps it from folding back at highway speeds. takes about 45 seconds to put on and take off.
Also if there is a Fastenal in town they should have or be able to get the pins you're looking for.
I was actually thinking some sort of motorcycle mirror myself. Either attach it to the hinge or on a small bracket between the good and fender.
