Hi there! I am trying to locate a set of shoulder pads like in the attached picture but nothing I've found so far is matching up. These would be "vintage" pre-1982 pads from a motocross chest protector, and of course not decorated with Disney TRON "circuitry". I'm hoping someone here might know older gear well enough to recognize it and point me in the right direction with at least a brand name. Thanks!

Yes, I saw that one. The gap between the shoulder and bicep pads is too large, and the plastic cups have a raised "plus" on them instead of being smooth. So yes, close, but not the same pads.

The plastic cup could have been sanded smooth and painted. I think there is custom work on that prop. Also do you know if that was from the movie or just a fan made prop?

The ones Ive found from the movie are Jofa's

I doubt the plastic cup could have been sanded smooth because the raised detail is taller than the actual thickness of the plastic - attempting to smooth it by removing material would result in a hole at the raised area. It would have had to been filled to smooth it but the photo looks more like an OEM cup with gaffer tape detailing than something modified. The photo is of the actual Disney studio prop that went up for auction a few years ago and is not a fan re-creation. Jofa pads were indeed used in the movie and I have a set which are an exact match of what was used for Tron and Flynn. However, Sark's pads are shaped completely different and proving to be a challenge to identify let alone acquire.

I think M Robert made a set that looked like that back in the day.

I have acquired the correct pads. They turned out to be from a Hallman USA chest protector.
