New Motocross helmet – $40

New helmet, never used. Dusty, not sweaty and crusty like other gross used helmets!
Medium to average in size, not for a nugget or bucket head. $40

Hello,
Are you still looking to sell your Motocross Helmet?  Believe it or not, I’m in desperate need of a helmet just like this one.  I’ve created my entire Motocross wardrobe, including: gloves, leather pants, and a leather jacket with an ominous-looking skull and crossbones on the back.  However, I have yet to find the perfect helmet.  I think yours will go quite nicely,  especially with the yellow accent color.  And, thank heavens it’s not crusty!  If I had a Penny for every time I tried on a crusty helmet!  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
RP

Thanks, Mike

Michael,
Is it okay if I wear the rest of my motocross outfit?  I want to make sure the helmet goes well with the jacket, pants, and gloves.  I don’t have a bike.  Right now, I’ve been wearing the outfit around the house and to parties.  Do you have a motorcycle?  If so, do you have another helmet?  I wouldn’t want to take the only helmet you have.  This could put you at serious risk for a potentially fatal head injury.

Thanks,
RP

Michael,
One more thing.  What exactly is a nugget/buckethead?  I’ve never been told that I have a large head.  I’ve been able to fit it into several different types of buckets.  But, then again, how do you know if a bucket is large…for a bucket, that is?  Do you think I’ll be able to wear the helmet if my head is closer to the size of a honeydew melon, then say… a pumpkin?

Thanks,
RP

Buckethead, unlike the kick ass guitarist, is someone like OJ Simpson with a giant melon- greater in diameter than 80% of the rest of humankind.
Nuggethead is like someone with a teeny tennis ball sized head.
Give me a call if you want to check it out- the size of the helmet is pretty average.
Later,

Okay. Great!

P.S.  I’ve attached a caricature drawing of my head.

Thanks,
