Regarding Evel's helmets, did you know.....
Just a bit of trivia for those who haven't seen one up close, even though Evel's helmets appeared to be white, they were actually painted with a pearl basecoat before the stars and stripes were painted.
Evel must have liked that look because the two Skycycles painted the same way.
Also, his first helmets weren't Bell helmets, they were Harley Davidson branded. I removed the foam linings on the 2 that I've owned and they were both HD products.
Useless info I know, but if someone wants to really create an accurate replica, give it a pearl while basecoat and get sheets of gold leaf from any automotive paint store for the EVEL.
Or buy a real one and save all that work! Lol

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
