    Gday Mate, Looking at the condition of the leather you're probably right I've never had one with a liner before which i think is what made me buy it as they don't come together too often. Imust admit i'm a tad exited

    I'll be very curious to see how you refit the liner. I see the pins are still in the shell so i'm guessing the outer liner band is just a mass of rust (thereby holding the rivet heads in place) and the inner liner is rusted away (which is why the leather liner is loose).

    I have this situation with my relic wire M40 and double sided tape is all I coud think of to 'refit' the crusty old liner and that method would just look too hokey IMO so the liner is still seperate from the shell to this day.

    You have any photos of your helmet interior?

    Nice helmet mate. Did you only pay 64 $ for that lid? Those guys are cheap... I guess the Euro crisis must have hit Estonia.
