    Hi, looks a good M40 to me as well, as for the strap, just look after it, that's about all you can do. Leon.

    Thanks Leon, I still have a hard time with M35 vs M40. Hard to tell if the vent is one piece or two.

    Look on the inside - you will see the fold of the vent insert if a M35.

    Nice helmet!

    A nice one looker, nothing you can do about the strap just leave it be as its part of the helmets history and character
