    I used to do that when I was a kid. After I had to wear one for duty, I started looking at our "toys" differently.

    i tried my m35 when i received it and it's a big size so it was fun to try it but it made me realize how heavy it would have been to run with that on their head . And no i wasn't looking especially good with it on my head it look better on my foam head lolol!

    None of mine fit on my fat head. Saying that, the only people who they do fit on are a couple of my mates tiny girlfriends. The Germans mostly had tiny heads back then..

    I have before, and because of my blue eyes and blondish hair, you get the point.

    How could you not? They're just sitting there calling out for someone to try them on!!

    Speaking of bikers helmets, this reminds me I have to get in touch with my uncle....he said he has a German helmet he was going to give me that's sitting in his garage. He spray painted black and wore when he used to ride....should make for a good restoration project!
