    Don Post Deluxe

    Does anyone know how much money the don post deluxe helmets go for these days ? Need a bigger helmet, my 97, (and I suspect my w/i 95 too) are a little on the small side

    Thanks

    I have seen them go for upwards of 800. I think there is one on ebay right now.

    There's one on ebay going for 575$ right now. Your better off with a helmet from one of our members here. Better and cheaper. Marrow sun has one on ebay right now (don't know his reserve price though)

    800 !! , looks like I'll have to save a bit more then, not that I have ever seen one come up for sale on ebay uk (must be a rarity here) .

    I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity a couple of years ago to try one on (lovely fit, perfect size for my head), I've seen pictures of marrow sun's helmets and they do look very well made but they look a little big, plus I think that Marrow sun lives in the states or somewhere similar.

    thanks for the help

    DP deluxe is still innaccurate compared to the real deal.

    Sooo... what would the largest helmets be, and in what price range do they sit? I have a huge head, and a small wallet... But seriously, my DP 96 is a crazy tight fit with any sort of padding, and I don't have any fans or electronics in yet...

    The Don Post Deluxe definately seems a little smaller than the ones used in the Brilliant movies, but thats alright like many others the movie sized (is that the right expression) is a little too big.

    I'm guessing that M-S is Marrow sun but dont know what MLC or BM relates to ?

    Thanks

    I've got a DP Deluxe recast from one of our very own that I'd let go of. I've got $200 into it. It is a nicely done,thick,fiberglass casting with a 1/8" pre-cut visor and an aluminum rangefinder stalk.All the markings of the original are on it...bumps,scratches etc. Say $175 shipped??? The visor area has been cut out and the helmet has been primed...that's it. I can shoot pics if you're interested.

    LMK...

    Hi,
    For pictures, when you're posting, scroll down a little and hit "go advanced", then when you type in your text, scroll down a bit more and hit "manage attachments." A seperate little window will open and then you can then browse your hard drive and select what pictures you want to upload.
    Hope that helps!
    Also, PM sent.

    I've heard great things about Bobamaker's helmets.
    I have his knee and shoulder armour, and one of his visors, and the quality is astounding.
