Old Pudding Basin Helmut and Goggles
« on: August 17, 2016, 09:02:27 PM »
Hi I'm looking for an old 50/60s style pudding basin helmet and goggles , Condition aint to important as I am going to have it painted to suit my bike. Also period goggles and gloves if possible , I'm putting a bike in my living room and would like a period helmet to place on the tank , If you can help please let me know by PM, Will pay fair price for the helmet and goggles etc, Ive put a pic of my bike on its a 1954 Motobi B200 and as you can see is in super condition for its age .Any help would be appriciated and I will pick up the bits , Regards Ken

Could be rather pleasant o3W.

When I worked in Maghera, my Manager bought an old motor bike and took it up into his flat to rebuild it.  Well he did and then had to take it all apart again as he could not get it out of the door. .Poor man. .lol.

Oh Ken, I am delighted for you...I hope you appreciate that Saint of a woman you are married too.  Not many men as lucky as you.

That is a lovely bike....I will sit upon it when we all come for the Christening Service....Champagne all round. :-*
