Wow! That is a cool collection! Aren't you glad you didn't just give it away or just trash it now. Thanks for sharing.

Rasta that is awesome! Great collection. As I said before I just like the old gear and helmets more than the old bikes. Good fun collecting and showing it off. Open face lids were cool!

Awesome collection!! Gotta show it off. In a box or just laying around is no fun. Get some displays for that Moto history.

The mannequins are found on ebay. I look for the 5'8" ones as the gear from back in the day was for the most part riders were thinner and shorter in the 70's. Current ones dont fit old gear. Waist size on most vintage race pants is 30". Ya they get a

Newmann here is another display in the garage. I was going for an early Bob Hannah look when he ran the #39 on the OW125. My wish list for vintage gear is a pair of Carrera 98's and and the first face guard from Hallman. The one Marty Smith used and

Cool stuff as always Newmann. I'm hoping for just one of the first face guards that came out before the ones you have like the plain ol' white one as in the pic. I'm not sure if it was a Pacifico? Could have been Hallman? Just not sure. Marty Smith rocked
