Re: I'm looking for pictures of Evel's Lear Siegler helmet ...
Hey Lou, I'd like to see a photo of the helmet you have. All LSI helmets have a small chin piece, unlike Evels who we/some believe was custom made maybe by Larry Watson in the day. I have quite a few photos of that helmet floating around. Evel only wore a stock LSI for one jump and that was the LA cycle show in 69. Let me know what you have...
: I have an old helmet that I've planned for
: years to paint into a replica jump helmet.
: I was doing research and discovered that I
: have the exact same Lear Siegler helmet that
: Evel used from about '69 to '71 so I'm going
: to do it in the exact same paint scheme.
: I posted a link to a fan replica that sold
: on ebay, but I've also seen another fan
: replica that was a little bit different and
: since the helmet is exactly the same I want
: the paint to be exactly the same.
: If anyone has pics of Evel's version of the
: Lear Siegler I would really appreciate if
: you could either post them here or e-mail
: them to me at Lou.Costa@gmail.com. (Don't
: forget the dot in my name or it will be
: bouncing around cyberspace.
: Thanks to anyone who might be able to help
: me fulfill an Evel dream of having a jump
: helmet in my Bat Cave.

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.
