    Need Old Crashed Helmets Please

    Racers
    Thank you for taking a moment to read/respond to this post.
    My name is Carl Peterson, I am a Street Rider and a Mini RoadRacer. In an effort to increase Helmet use by local Street Riders I have discussed doing a series of Saturday morning Clinics to be sponsored by a local Dealership(Family Powersports Odessa Texas) These would include Helmets, Suspension setup, Control setup and adjustment, light maintenance, Brakes/oil change etc etc.
    They have agreed to start doing Saturday Morning clinics at their Dealership and to also provide free coffee and Donuts! The idea is this Obtain several crashed Helmets cut them in half and display the damage that results to the styrofoam liner. Based from cheap $19.99 Helmets to high end Helmets. I personally feel this would not only be a great educational tool but also a great selling tool for this particular Dealer.
    Again the intent here is to EDUCATE STREET riders and not only get them into Helmets,,,,,, but GOOD Helmets!
    Family PowerSports actually owns 4 Stores and based on the success of this endeavor this Spring here, they may spread it to their other stores(Lubbock, San Angelo and McKinney). I AM NOT receiving any type of payment or compensation this is just aimed at the fact that New/Young/Inexperienced riders could use some education. The Fact that my Wife is the Office Manager for Family PowerSports gave me an avenue to pursue this endeavor. If you have a Crashed Helmet that you would like to Donate Please contact me @
    NS50R@Hotmail.com
    If you will mail the Helmet at ACTUAL cost I will gladly pay shipping via PayPal or MO.
    You are more than welcome to remove ANY useable components(Shield, side plates, Adjustable pads lining, Ratchet mechanism)from the Helmet so long as the Shell and styrofoam liner remain. Or you are welcome to send the complete Helmet. Again the intent is show these riders FIRST Hand Why you don't want a cheap helmet AND why you NEVER use a crashed used helmet. If your still with me,, ANY questions comments ideas or advice could be directed to me above listed EMail PLEASE put HELMETS in the subject line

    FWIW, Carl is a fantastic guy who would and has literaly given the shirt off his back for people. I've known him for 10+ years and he is about as stand up as they come.

    I'd love to, but I'm afraid we too have found new use for my crashed helmets to avoid OSHA clampdown (or at least to save Alex's hair [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] ):

    Carl, do you remember me???? last time I saw you was at Hitchcock before they closed it. My first memory of you was, you letting me use a spare set of leathers my very first race in 99 at Denton on the fiddy. You were a BIG part of my inspiration to continue racing ,Gosh we sure miss you!!!!!!!!

    Renee, I'll pass it along. He can't post here, isn't CMRA. Hope he got some helmets. Sounds like a good cause. Might just save some new street rider's life with a little education.
