Not sure if this is taking it too far or whether I would even trust them to do the job if needed but they are pretty cool!!

Not sure that I would ever buy a second hand helmet.

x2 on BobT's comment , this helmet is a System 3 from 1985 , I've had a System 4 & a System 5 , the liner from the 4 disintegrated over time and was thrown out , got a bit more out of my 5 after replacing all of the cheek & crown padding , currently using a System 7 , there is no way that this lid would be safe , the inner would be rotted

Don't get me wrong, it's not something I would be using (would never use a 2nd hand lid). It would be for the history of them and the K series, I've always loved the K and the police use of them has always intrigued me, I mean there not the fastest, not the most agile and be a right pain to turn around in a tight spot but the reliability is unequalled. So with that in mind, to have a complete UK police set up would be a great thing to own, indulgent, but still great!

Anyone that does buy-to-use gets a free 'Darwin Award Contender' sticker to go with it.
