Finished another helmet

This was for my friend. She wanted the color to match her Yamaha, but I could do whatever I wanted for the design. She's a big butterfly fan, so I did a trick one. What do you think?

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the bike and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the bike. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you

It looks great!


Just curious... Why not go a little bigger/louder with the design? You know, something that pops off the black background a little more?

just curious, what kinda paint and top coating do you use for helmets?

i've painted 3 of my helmets so far, just using spray paint, and just more simple designs, my helmet now is just black with two white stripes down the middle, and the paint is nice enough for me, i'm not picky about it, just got bored of the plain back helmet, just wanted to see what you were using

black '03 speed four

mods include one of those sticky pads on the gas tank so it doesn't get scratched up,



buy a suzuki!

Hey Inky---

Ya think you could do something for me? really detail oriented and I'm having a friend in Cali draw up my scene for my helmet... attached a sample of what it might be like. =) Pm me if interest for the work, I totally would trust you after seeing the other painting you did. =)

Helmets save lives, I'm living proof.

People are so attracted to me they hit me with their cars.
