Crap, I am weak

Been looking for this one for 8 years or so. Need it to complete my collection of the three Gunwinds in Russell colors, found it brand new in Italy with tags (have seen the yellow one for sale even in used shape in years......)
Now I have two brand new Russell helmets on the way.... Armi, don't ask what this one cost
At leat one of them makes up for the Russell leathers I sold last week.
The guys I deal with are having a shit fit that I found a new yellow one.




This is a Spec. 1R on the way too...


[QUOTE=senator8]Haha! You're more than 1%. My bike ran perfectly all year. All I did was oil changes and thumbed the starter. While my competitors had bikes and carbs in pieces at the track I was enjoying a coffee and saying "thanks Chris"

I like both, but the red Russell is the shiz.

Red/yellow has a unique flavor to it.

Re: Crap, I am weak

Chris I might have been on here a short time but your passion for Scott Russell is well known. I was expecting some classic leathers but to see new lids well that takes fan worship to new heights.
