    got it off ebay, just search "vintage motorcycle helmet" and you will find it and a ton like it. But it had to be shipped over from korea, or china, or some asian country :)

    I see. I didn't find any for $19.99 shipped? Did you pay the crazy $40 shipping fees most of those want on top of the $19.99?

    no, It was $18.99 for shipping, it was an auction with an opening bid of $.99 and I was the only bidder

    Some updated pics, installed a nice vintage rack and made some saddle bags. Has a rear view pirror now ( hate it, goint to remove it) and I did an engine swap and have not yet "aged" it. she runs amazing! 35 mph all day long ( and its still in break in) and even with the 36t it climbs hills without much trouble.

    No, it did not give out. The last motor was a grubee 66cc, this is a jet 66cc and it was going to be for another bike, but it out ran my grubee hands down, so I swaped em out.
