RUST PROTECTION





 
Guy and i went to Bonhams sale at Harrogate today but instead of coming home with just the usual amazement at how much people will pay for rusty shit i actually bought something. Not a shiny Sunbeam or an artistic masterpiece (seemingly painted by a blind child) but a box of '70s helmets with TT history and how long is it since you saw a Turbo visor ?
More of the day on Instagram (Greasykulture and Eattherichuk) .
Helmet collectors have your bidding fingers ready....

* Update. The 1923 Deemster, top pic, made £3,700, the '36 Bentley £13,500, the work of art £12 and the '32 Sunbeam 350 £5750, cheap.

Japan is the place for the helmets, I sell Griffins on ebay, they all go there.

Amazing what gets classified as 'art' mate, good score on the lids though.
