Cool craigslist find today



Some guy down in Hialeah was selling for $180. I'm in Orlando but my brother was close by so he picked it up for me!

Would not normally have gone for a helmet with suzuki theme on it.. but it's actually a nice helmet and runs $775 new from suzuki website.

The irony for me is I was actually looking at the same model helmet (without the suzuki stuff on it) because I wanted one with a drop-down visor on the inside. It kind of felt like fate when I ran across this one. Matches my bike perfectly and there is no way im gonna find a better price..

My brother said the guy had a collection (literally) of like 20 helmets that we're all pretty high-end. He had bought one of these for himself and one for his girlfriend but the large was too big for her

What a score!!! That's the same helmet I have, and I thought I got a deal for a little over six.
It's a great helmet, it's allegedly a "limited edition", and it perfectly matches the bike.
Congrats!

[edit] I just noticed that the upper and lower vent plastics on that are not painted to match like they are on mine.
You might want to give it a real close look when you get it. ... just sayin' [\edit]

I just noticed that the graphics are a little different too. Maybe they made a couple different versions?

Don't want to upset you but I agree with Mike - It does look different to mine and the official one too. Vents are not coloured and different shape and graphics different, and definitely not a Shoei visor. I would check it out, but it's so cheap it doesn't really matter.

You guys might be right. Might not be real. If it turns out its not then it will make for cool garage decoration.....i would be weary of using a knock off helmet even if it looks good

My brother bought it for me and hasn't sent it to me yet. I did a little investigating though and I am pretty sure it's not the real Suzuki helmet. Honestly I doubt it's a real Shoei.... when I get it I'll let you guys know what it looks like but like I said before if it's not real I just wouldn't trust wearing it. I still think I'm going to go for that brand tell me next. Just not necessarily with the Suzuki Branding

I think you've got this

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...805264818.html

But somebody swapped the SOMAN sticker for a SHOEI one, which it was pretending to be anyway.

Edit: ah, looking a little further down the page, they have pictures of it with a shoei sticker, ballsy, they're even calling it a GT-Air

Wow, nice find. Unbelievable with the Shoei sticker too. Ballsy to say the least!
