2011 10 Best Airbrush Helmets

In 2006, I bought my very first sports bike, a brand new 2006 Suzuki GSXR 600. While my bike was being prepped, I was directed to the accessories department to pick out a motorcycle helmet since I wouldn't be able to ride off without one. As soon as I passed the tag sensors and turned around the corner, I saw many helmets lined up on the shelves.

After browsing around, I found a helmet which I liked very much and it matched the color scheme of my bike. As soon as I picked it up I heard a booming voice from behind me say, "That helmet is a very good helmet. My friend and I have the same one." The first thought that came to mind, "I don't want a helmet that many people in my city have." Not that there's anything wrong with getting factory made helmets but I wanted to be different.

Have you ever wanted to stand out? Ever dressed a certain way or act a certain way to get noticed by someone or some people? I am pretty sure we all have at least one time in our lives. Well I've always had the need to stand out, to be different but in a good or interesting way of course.

I researched online to find many customized motorcycle helmets. The more I looked at them the more I wanted to get a customized helmet done. After many days and nights on the laptop researching, I found my airbrush artist and thought of the design I wanted.

However, throughout my research I have seen many amazing and well airbushed helmets, but only found 10 that are eye popping. I wish to share these artistic and eyecatching motorcycle helmets.

This is my favorite helmet. So much detail in the face of the joker. Plus, he looks mean as hell.

      Around 300-500 pending how much detail you want in it.

      Those helmets are done using a window screen that restricts your vision, catches every bug that even gets near your helmet as you ride, nearly impossible to clean the bugs out once stuck in the window screen , the window screen is just stuck to the visor (adhesive backing), so when the window screen comes off (which it will evenly) your are left with a helmet that has part of the design missing, the widow screen over the visor. Lastly if painting your visor like that was a smart thing to do the helmet manufactures would be doing it, they aren't for a reason -- it restricts your vision. If helmet manufactures could safely make a buck doing it they would be. Riding a road bike has enough hazards involved why create more by wearing a helmet where your vision is restricted.
