Awesome helmet (IMAGES)

Across the street from my house is a housing co-op that just got rid of all its junk on their front lawn. Mostly crap (upwards pointing standing lamps, old lady baskets, broken stereos), but I did find one real gem.

Its a 1995 Canadian-made LOFOX helmet. Its the bee's knees!

Here are some pictures for illustration:

Top view. Looks pretty nice!


Bottom view. Nice hardware!


Front view. HUH?


Side view. Excuse me now?


Three quarters view. Wow thats quite the helmet!


But what does it look like on a human head?

HUGE!


It makes you look REALLY cool without even trying



This helmet is totally and absolutely ******** but great at the same time. I'm gonna decorate it for halloween!

It says on a sticker on the inside that it is designed for bicycle use only but I suspect it is actaully a luge helet from the strange 'cut' of the face protector.

Excuse my ignorance. Is that a real helmet or a mock-up?

OMG LOFOX? I know those!!!! First attempts at full face for the commuter. As you can see from our lovely model Shiznaz, it didn't go over very well. What a score!!

If you have to use a flash, it's not bright enough to wear sunglasses.
