    GMH Aluminium Ears - Commitment

    Hi Guys,

    I've been PM'd by many guys asking about this project and I'm glad to say that I am at the final stages of being able to offer these ears to adorn the awesome GMH helmet that has been brought to us by both Art and Chris...

    I'm not one for long posts as you know...
    But I was fortunate to be asked to undertake this project (with help from a keen eyed member here, Keegan) and between us we have addressed many finite details to achieve what I think will be some great additions to the GMH lid.

    I would invite Keegan to step in and post further information / details on how this all came about...

    But in the meantime I'd like to openly start an interest thread to establish whether any of you GMH owners would be interested?

    I have no prices as of yet and I appreciate that your posts would be "Interested pending price" but the more interested parties the cheaper I can keep the costs down. (More details to follow)

    Here are a couple of rendered shots of what we are looking at - Complete sets will include all accurate fixings!


    *** UPDATE ***

    Costs for these Ali ears is $250 (Shipped) the costs include everything!!
    (All funds to be sent 'gifted' to gavdrew007@aol.com)

    - 5 Piece ear set.
    - Pivot bolt for stalk.
    - All accurate brass screws for mounting them.

    Now... I don't normally do this, BUT... due to the costs associated with this size of run I'm going to need money upfront, and a minimum of 43 members to make this run happen!

    I'm gonna let this thread run for a while to gauge numbers and member commitment, production will commence 2nd week in April when the CNC machine is available. expected turn around 1-2 weeks.






    Cheers,

    Gav

    Don't even have a GMH on order yet, but I'd take a set now and hold them until I do, Gav. Thanks!

    Re: GMH Aluminium Ears - Interest

    Feast your eyes on the best set of replica ears that have ever been made. That's right I can say that and its not boasting (well maybe just a little)

    When you say I helped you Gav, do you mean harassing you about changing .2mm here and there was a good thing? Gav has really put in the work on these ears and really cared about making them as close to perfect as possible. They turned out to be very challenging in many ways and yes, sometimes obsessing about fractions of mm made a big difference.

    These ears have all the original features and this has never before been achieved in a replica. The microswitch slot, the weird little holes on the backside of the inner ear, the odd angles have all been replicated referencing the GMH ears. For the unseen and unknown details, heavy research was done and if we didnt get the details exactly right, at least they Look exactly like what is seen on the original ears. More about these details later.

    Every GMH owner should sign up for these. They are very special ears for a very special helmet.

    Cheers for posting kbrosseau...
    I too think these will be the most accurate replica to date, and the 'harassing' has certainly paid off!
