It takes 3 baby seals to make each one.

Re: Hutch helmet question

Get one custom made. That is what I'm doing for my motrocycle helmet.

I'll be rocking a Hutch helmet while cruising the streets.

There is a custom Hutch helmet thread around here somewhere. Maybe in th catchall.

Re: Hutch helmet question

No idea.

I'd wager that Hutch when they used either Ecko, Bell or whatever helmet brand they were sponsored by, it was Hutch who sent the helmets out for paint or vinyl stick on graphics to a local firm near the helmet supplier. 

Ecko or Bell sends the helmets to the paint shop of Hutch's choosing, paint shop sends finished product to Hutch or one of their distributors to pass onto team members.

For all I know the helmet supplier could have contracted the grahic application work out also.

Re: Hutch helmet question

The Hutch helmet thread I was referring to has all the pics deleted so it is useless now. sad

Here is another about custom helmets so this may help:

Re: Hutch helmet question

i'm going to make my own helmet as i'd like to have an open ear hole. as much as the vintage 70's helmets appeal to me, they are a closed ear hole. unless now thinking about it i cut a ear hole into a helmet. ( which is possible ), any one know how to add snap fastener to a helmet.
could i just use velcro i have found both types under a few dollars and a snap tool for a few dollars.

Re: Hutch helmet question

just buy a modern helmet you like and paint it. changing a helmet's structure may cost you your life when you need that helmet most.

Re: Hutch helmet question

please post pics of your helmet so we can guide and assist you if you plan on cutting it.  wink

Drill holes and mount hockey helmet chin strap snaps. They screw together like a T-nut. Any sports shop selling hockey gear should have them.
