Not too bad or too good. I agree with that. If you like it, its cheaper than new.

Yeah it doesn't make me feel warm inside...but I am not entirely cold either. What I can say is check around. I got a couple of my lids cheaper than that brand new with just a little persistance and some checking on ebay.

i bought the same one for 150 and on ebay they are 350 all day
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-S...mZ310091035524

I would offer him 250 and that wouldnt be a bad deal... but i have the same exact helmet as that and its a sweet helmet especially when u put the dark smoke visor on it

That's a Shoei RF-1000. I got mine for $200 used and it was in perfect shape. While I got mine for a great deal (only seen one other that cheap in the same shape since then), I'd say you should be able to get one for less than $350 from someone else. Sure, it costs more new but the market is what it is.

Cycle Gear has a TON of RF1000's for $360 brand new. I paid $400 for a Kiyonari X11. $350 used seems like a replacement cost.

Not a great deal. You can do it new for the same or less.

Shoei makes a superb product, though. YOu can't go wrong there.

Its an RF1000. They are new $450 for the design models and $350 for the solids. It looks in great shape but I would try to get closer to $300 if you can, just cause it is used. Great helmet though. I have owned 3 and I love them.

Maybe the solid colors. Cycle gear regular price is $450 and $350 (solids). I have gotten as much as $50 off one before. A design pattern RF1000 is more than $360 at CG.
