- THE PRICELESS HELMET -
SOME OF THE MOST ICONIC MOTORCYCLE RACING SIGNATURES ON THIS AUTOGRAPHED HELMET
OK, so this is not a priceless helmet, it's a Davida Jet in cream with stripes, supplied new at about £250. I love these, for fit, comfiness and sound deadening, all in all a great lid. The Classic Jet is my favourite as it has a smaller profile but fulfills all the above. So what makes it priceless? Well...........
Take a new one to the Mallory VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes 3 years running and pester the legends that appear to sign it and you have the makings of something rather special. Sure there are lots of things with Ago's, Read's or Cooper's signature on it, but get them all together and you have a Very, Very Special one off.
Is it really priceless?
Well that is a matter of opinion and only you can answer that.
