    Not entirely sure how legal this is, and whether in a crash the pointy-out bits will drive through the helmet, but it sure turns heads

    I have one of these for cycling, I 'could' apply stickers, but I wouldn't want to block the vents up as it's hot enough wearing it as it is:

    That is one cool helmet! I wish the companies that made helmets for cycling would make a design that interesting. Certainly, my first stop would be to the bike shop to pick one up to use with my mountain bike.

    Do they make a Darth Vader version? Because then I might just wear it.

    Cute R2-D2 helmet and lady.

    A Darth Maul version would be something for me, black with red tribal tattoo design and horns.

    Careful with metal screws if you want to attach accessories to a helmet. Once I screw a small flashlight to my helmet for a night ride. When I fell off the bike , the screw pokes my head quite hard although I already add some styrofoam cuts and some other layer for precautions.

    Yes I've tried to glue it before screwing it to the helmet, but some items were just too heavy for a glue to stick.

    I didn't see the main photo, but the other is not recommended for motorcycle use, its not dot or snell rated, I think its used for bi-cycles, I'm not sure if you are riding a gas powered bike or a bi-cycle, but be careful out there. I do have to racing bikes and I wouldn't wear any thing else but this...[​IMG] Be careful out there....
