  6. I'm not sure that whether a twice superseded helmet is still in production (as it obviously is/was since he has one in his possession with a dated label inside) is really a state secret to be honest. You could probably phone the factory and ask them if you really wanted to.

    He may be grooming you. Next thing you know he'll invite you over for an all expenses paid holiday to China and you'll be living out the rest of your days chained up in a 50 year old Chinaman's love dungeon.
  8. Zala, Why do you need to know whether or not it is still in production?
  9. I'll PM him me contact info then! :)
  10. To check whether his is a fake?
  11. If you need a travelling companion ...

  13. We don't know if it is a 'he' yet, so there might still be scope for 'secret helmet' info.
