    It was given to me by Dean. Right now, the craze are these repop 3/4 helmets that cost $100-150 and this one is an original. I gutted it, saved the decals inside and replaced the interior and liner. On Ebay, on the Asian market, it would sell for close to $300-1000 if I put it up. One in mint condition sold over last summer to a guy in Japan, for $3000. I kid you not. Not the same brand, but same style.
    Thanks and WOW on the value.

    Her first comment before asking about the color was that she had one "just like it" and wore it for many years. She got her first street bike in '73 or '74. Her's was white and the first thing she did was spray paint it black.

    Really diggin how low profile that helmet looks...hard to find that with the current DoT standards or whatever, I've seen Bell come out with a "retro" helmet that claims low profile DoT rating.... they all look like those helmets on Spaceballs now...

    Last night I was showing mrs B all the Herdstock pics and she picked your bike out for questions so I showed her this thread (she was duely impressed). Then we went back to the Herdstock pics and she said..."there must be a reason his helmet is blue, what's the story?"

    I said...uhhh...I don't know and then I got the "look". So I'm asking..."is there a significance to the blue?"

    If not can you make up a good story so maybe it'll get me a brownie point for asking? LMAO
