Now thats a helmet!!

Postby SIR_SMP » Wed Dec 13 2017, 06:14

Hi Y'all

anyone that knows me knows I have a terrible helmet fetish, but I have been cooking up something extra special over the past few months

Essentially this is a Alpha 900 (the best helmet!) that was stripped, silver plated (yes silver) then worked with a master painter who applied the artwork which was put over in translucent and solid colours, topped off with NVG mount, clip in full liner, oxygen receivers and of course a flash A20 bluetooth conversion

Enjoy 8) 8) 8) 8) :wink: :cool_slp:

A terrible helmet fetish would seem to be appropriate in this case, as that is a terrible helmet!

Valentino Rossi would be envious!

Admire your commitment for the cause though. :D

I can see you wearing said helmet taxiing out lining up onto Foxtrot Pohm 1 :wink:

Pohm,

That helmet is magnificent.

Ignore the others. It's GOLD (silver).

How did you find fitting the a20 into your helmet?
Is there a kit? because i can see two extra boxes sitting on top?

Sir SMP cant see it when he is wearing it, so he needs to sell it so that he can admire his work from afar.

Really, really, afar ....
