I dropped off my Vespa today to get some work done. I got it used last week, and I have a 60 day parts and service warranty. I'm getting every little thing taken care of.

So I was talking to the shop owner and he remembered he had the brochure for my scooter. As he brought it out he remembered there were also a couple helmets. He found one so far. I know half helmets aren't popular here but it's very cool having it.

It needs some tlc. After 20 years the padding completely eroded. I have another half helmet I don't wear so I can use that padding. The bigger issue is its a large helmet and I got an xl head.

Still, SCORE! These helmets ain't cheap.

This thread is probably not going to go how the OP hoped. But I'm not going to be the one to light it up.

20 year old perished helmet that doesn't fit? What could go wrong?

I wouldn't say that. It being a half helmet alone will earn scorn
