Have you crashed recently (I hope not) or discovered that your helmet is unusable or you simply just don't want it anymore? Good news! I want it! Even if it is severely damaged (though I'd prefer a whole helmet over something cleaved in two). I am an airbrush artist looking to open a business custom painting motorcycle helmets and plastic, however I need something to practice on first. Willing to pay for helmets. Price will depend on condition of helmets. Will also accept damaged motorcycle plastics too!

What if I 'loan' you my plastics to practice on? As long as you aren't airbrushing long cylindrical water fountains in between a couple of round bushes, it will probably look better than the rattle can job on it now.

Otherwise, I've got an older (damage free) HTC helmet my wife is nagging me to get rid of. The visor is scratched and doesn't open/close properly, but should work fine for your needs. PM me for more details if interested.

I've got a few helmets that would fit the bill. PM me your email address and we can figure something out.

I just looked at the picture in the original post again, are you so anxious to get helmets that you go to hospital rooms to get them? That's dedication!

Too be fair, if I can turn that helmet into something beautiful then I have a lot of credit to my name. (I would never resale a helmet that ever experienced any damage or has expired.) The really bashed up helmets are used for paint testing. (I couldn't find most things online so I did my own experiments to ensure the paints, primers, clear coats, everything will not affect the plastics or harm the infrastructure of the helmet in any way.)

I'm just giving you crap :)

For reference, the helmet I'm giving you is perfectly usable for the street but it's passed it's shelf-life for the track. And as a benefit, I'm pretty sure I washed it a long time ago and it doesn't even smell funky!

It was probably worn for one or more of the CRA pit bike races...then washed out.

I had to throw away the helmet I wore in the swamp race, there was no saving that one.
