    Alright, you beautiful people. I need your help.

    I have a helmet, brand new in the box, that I would like custom painted (like a number 13 pool ball) for my son in law.

    it’s for his birthday, which isn’t until August so you would think that there is plenty of time. However, I can’t find anyone to do the work.

    I live in Seattle, USA. I’ve tried locally without success, and then Troy Lee designs in California. They said that they are one year out, to which I said, “ok, I’m in no real hurry,” sent them the art and then they ghosted me. So I guess they don’t want my little project, which is just as well because I’d like the painter to be at least a LITTLE excited about it.

    In today’s world it doesn’t seem like a big deal to ship the hat to the shop, no matter where it is. In the US seems more realistic, but I’m not sure it really matters.

    So, any ideas would be welcomed. And thanks in advance.

    I'm in England so no idea about who could do that in the States but would it be worth exploring the classifieds in custom bike mags or websites, or maybe even asking around at local dealers. You might end up talking to a guy who knows a guy...

    Thanks so much, Golgotha! This is great stuff.

    Details of the project are sent to airgraffix and dbcustoms; if anything comes of it I’ll let you know.

    Here’s the idea 7F1E9913-7B71-4A66-9FD4-51BB49F95343.png
