    Hi, i still havent bought one of these because i just cant admire them. I dont find them very attractive.
    Finding a chinstrap wont be very dificult. Just get a poor condition one from ebay and get the parts from there.
    Cheers

    A bit 'rough around the edges' but a great looking helmet.
    Especially nice is the badge.........!

    I had one of these and discussed it with Andy before he passed. Using the contact number, I think he identified it as being 1950s-1960s vintage.

    There is likely a makers mark on the reverse of the badge - which looks
    original to the helmet. It may provide a clue as to an
    approximate age.........
