I really wanted this facemask as a kid in 80´s, now I have found one in very good shape :-)
Its made in Sweden, by AP products if I remember correct.
Edit: made by "miniMAN" Enköping, Sweden

I don't know if they where exported to US?

That is interesting. I don't remember those from the 80's. I do not think we got them over here.

Did any of the top MX GP riders in the 80's use those?

Found a set in red, NOS unopend... Hell, i wanted a red set to go with a red helmet, but i cant open that package..
I see my memory was not right, its made by "miniMAN" not "AP Products" both companies was located in Sweden.
This will be collecting dust on the shelf.

Oh.. Memories..
They were popular in the Swedish enduros in the early eighties.
Briliant design, when the going got slow and it was tricky section and they started to fog just flip them up.
And when the speed picked up, flip em down..

I think "Jösse" Sven-Erik Jönsson used the FlipUp
(one of the best enduro riders)

I don't ever remember seeing those in the US. Looks like something you crazy Swedes would use though. LOL

I actually never saw anyone use the flip-up facemask, but the goggles was great.

I have no plans of selling, but if i find more sets i will let you know.
I have extra facemasks, large and ugly as hell (snowmobile/Winter enduro?) but no goggles

These never caught on either. I don't ever remember seeing somebody wearing these in real life. Fail. This ad was in the July 76 Popular Cycling.

This was one of the BEST early Hallman Products they ever made. Worked great for keeping your googles clean for the start.
