    Where's good and still cheap?

    I saw a place at the E-shed markets some time ago - does anyone know if they're good?

          Jarrid at awesome air did mine about 5 mnths ago. the finish on the helmet is fantasic and the job that he did was also fantastic , he will custom design exactly what you want and he has some great ideas on things that you may not be sure of. I'll take some pics of my helmet and post them tonight when i get home(if i have time), also Jarrid won't paint another helmet the same as yours, so you know it's an original !

            Great Tex! Looking forward to seeing them

            I emailed them for some info - how much was it? (approx)

              Got an email back from Jarrod.

              Price depends on design, but averages from $300 - $500 and it takes 2-3 weeks to complete a job - so you'd better have a spare helmet if you wanna still ride.

              He says the best thing to do is drop in to the E-shed Markets on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays for a look.

                  if you have time for a mini squiz during the week and can't get to the markets this weekend, there are 2 demo helmets in the accessories section at Causeway Honda - whilst i've not had mine done yet, the guy is an absolute artist - it's brilliant

                    I met the guy personally through his cousin when he first arrived in Perth to set up business.

                    The guy is a genius with an airbrush. Well worth the money.

                    I have his business cards if needed.

                      check this out. i wouldn't wear one (dont look super safe to me) but they look pretty trick. and i'm sure, that wearing the right set of leathers, you could freak some "the truth is out there" people out a lot

                          i think you would get more protection from a pushbike helmet. lol
                          but they certainly would turn heads....
                          wonder what the visibility is like...
