    Help please...FP helmet and extras

    Hello all.

    I have a FP helmet (#5) with the works...metal ear pieces, range finder and chin strap. I may be selling off everything as a package deal but I have no idea what a fair price would be, I am not looking to sell this rig at a profit...I just want to get back my investment. Everything is as it was when it all shipped to me way back when and I have yet to work on it so its good to go...I just don't remember what everything costs me.

    Anyway, if someone with a better memory than myself could shoot me a PM that would be wonderful.

    Cheers!

    I cant remember for sure, but I think the kit was mid 200's adn the metal kits was about the same.

    You could mail chris (FP) though, and I think he would be able to tell you what it cost/sells for now.

    With the FP helmets going to a new home, having chris's worksmanship is a premium.

    I'm on the lookout for a helmet and might be interested if you decide to sell.

    The FPH's were $250 shipped back in 07 The ears on the other hand, I honestly don't have a clear recollection on that as I was not involved with the actual sales of those, only design. But I believe that they were between $250 and $300 shipped. The ears do however go for about $225 at this time when available.

    Hope that helps

    Might be good to confirm whether the ears in question are the machined metal ones or cold-cast when determining the price. (not sure if the FPH had cold-cast ears)

    I made the FPH. It did not have cold cast ears. He is referring to a run of Aluminum Ears that we outsourced to fit the FPH. A small run of 20 or 30 were offered right around the time that the FPH was first produced.

    Sorry Chris, I just didn't remember if you had done cold cast ears on the FPH. Thought it might be worth clarifying when seeking a price. I've occasionally heard people refer to cold cast as metal.

    Thanks for the clarification, apologies for the confusion.

    No need to apologize brother. I didn't mean to come off cross if it seemed that way I didn't even realize who you were until this very minute - you changed your name (meaning you did know who made the FPH because you've been around for years)

    -Chris
