For sale or swap Mk10 Gecko helmet

I have for sale a mk 10 white Gecko GMSH helmet.

This is the latest design with the inflatable liner. It is in very good condition with just the normal marks from use.

I believe that it is one size fits all but the size range on the side of the helmet states 57 - 62 cm.

The only reason I am selling is I need the same helmet in orange so I would consider a swap.

It is for sale without the visor but I may have a full clear visor available.

RRP 140 so I am after 80


Cheers,

Mike

Only a thought but can't you just paint it Orange, it's only fibreglass and there are specific paints for the job.

If its a GRP/Composite lid you can use any paint on it, probobly best with 2 pack but if its an injection moulded polycarbonate (Lexan) resin helmet then i'd be wary,

unsure what material the gecko is

my sister does some fancy helmet airbrushing without any proplems,

I am just going to send gecko a quick email about re-spraying it which I am sure they will say I can't. I will get some photos on here tomorrow if I can.

If I can remember I thought mine were of fibreglass construction. I'll check tomorrow.

What sort of airbrushing does your sister do? PM me if you like

That's a great Idea and sorry for hijacking your thread a bit.

Did you get an answer for spraying the helmet or will it be for sale?
