Replica paint helmet news

Web Monkey Gear

Paddy the Painter says he is willing to do some more lids. They have to be brand new, or as good as new. The paint jobs are £250. Email him [email protected] No news if next year’s helmet sponsor, AGV, will be doing replicas, but they haven’t mentioned it so it’s very unlikely.
