It’s an old cliché I know but “They just don’t build em like they used to”. Very reluctantly I’ve been talked into upgrading my helmet a new one costs £30 this one is less than 20 years old & in A1 100% pristine condition and has been well looked after at no expense in all that time. A bargain at only £25 an ideal last minute Christmas gift I’ll FedEx it make sure its there for the 25th.

:p

I've taken the day off work to look 4the receipt but couldn't find it, so I phoned the shop I bought it from the owner died apparently several years ago & I'm told they only keep records for 7 years...

by way of compensation I'll drop the price to £ 24 & I guarantee you can still have it for Christmas...

grand prix legends

wes.
Give them a call if I were you. this is legendary stuff.
It reminds me of the early coultard hemelts from his f3 days. Maybe he would be interested in making you an offer??
You did look the part in it at brands and it reminded me of the many days gone past there.

Confused...

If the helmet is of such sentimental value and you're only going to make £25 from the sale, it begs the question of why sell it?

I think I have a New Vissor In the Packet that will fit your Helmit

Do you think it will put the price up a little?

Do you know the Make?

The Bike is a GT 750 Knowen as a Boiler because it was one of the first to be water cooled. (sorry if you new that any one)

Do you still have that in the garden shed as well?

if you don't get any joy selling try a Part X deal Weston :D :D

Oooooooh

So Scott you've never had the pleasure of 'givin it large on a stroker' then.

No ones lived until they've had a blast on a tuned 'Green Meanie' surely ?

Nice one Phil re the other 2 pipe manufacturers ( term manufacturers used lightly of course.)
