If we can make on let's send one down to Florida to fix the real one. :lol:
Here's my idea gents. It's made from two gear shift gaters and vinyl cloth, this is just a mock up, the vinyl can be cut to cover the hole in the nose and the gaters will be attached to form one piece.

Jon, That doesn't look too bad at all. I thought of doing that and looked at tons of different boot styles but couldn't find any that I thought fit the part. I think those would do, at the very least as a temporary stand-in until an accurate permanent one could be made.

Have you noticed the differences between the series and pilot helmets yet? 8-)

Oh yeah. Your list helped greatly. I have not had any time to work on the visor mechanism but I've got some ides.


I saw a weapons control bar that you or someone else had posted here. Was that accurate??? I first thought they were, then not, now not sure.

It's mine. Got it with the nose and side panels molded from the series hero bike, from one of the past owners of the hero bike. He claimed it was the actual one from the bike, but I'm not sure. Jesse 1 made one that was a bit larger in diameter and could be more accurate.

So they were cylinder for sure?????

I know on some scenes with the bike they have a weird looking silver thing where the weapons bar should be that looks kinda like it and has zip ties on it. I'm guessing quick thing that kinda looked like the weapons bar for non close ups?????

Yes, cylindrical for sure, but not all bikes had them, and some had an alternate switchbox to trigger certain effects.

Excellent. That makes it much easier to make. Just need a lathe. I'm thinking aluminum tube. Thick enough to put on the grooves. Shape the ends out of solid aluminum rod the same diameter. Cut those off and stick on the end of the pipe. It's hollow for switches, light, airsoft gun control :D Then just the bottom post and clamp piece.

Done


Any clue what the flip up clear cover was???

I may have access to a metal shop in the near future.

I'll see if I can see a part number on the ones I have. Flip-up clear switch covers are pretty common. Just need to know the switch size.

I picked up one of these off Ebay.:

Cheap and neat. Reminds me of the Airwolf start buttons as well.
