I saw a helmet painted like an Italian flag on a guy on a mille a week ago. I thought it looked really cool and would like to have one. I have searched the web and found nothing of the sort. Anyone seen this before? Or is this a custom job.

I've seen a couple AGV helmets with the colors of the Italian flag in their designs/paint-scheme, but they look more like race-replica designs than the italian flag itself. :-/

The helmet is green, white, and red. I'm not sure I would call that the Italian flag, though.

I swear I have seen an Older Arai with the Italian tri-color,
I am not finding anything either.....hard since they off the net and don't list their old ones, but I will keep looking....

I been shopping for a helmet, and i have seen that arai makes a helmet painted as an itailian flag. It is a very simple paint scheme unlike the above agv. The arai is divided into three colored sections. It may not be a 2004 model, but i am quite sure it was in the 2003 catalog.

There is an older Arai with the Italian flag colors. One side looks green, one side looks red, and has a white strip in the middle.

I would check Italian websites, if they exist, for different brands. Considering that you can find American flag styles from most manufacturers, I would imagine you could find some Italian ones. Remember, many products are tailored for specific markets...

I found those looking at the Italian version of google, http://www.google.it/ . I'm sure there are more out there, you can usually finnd just about anything if you search enough... :)

What I did was find a really good custom helmet painter and gave him my ideas for a helmet and turned him loose. The results were fabulous! It was one of the best things I did for me. It becomes a very personal thing, much more than I expected. I used a guy called Happy Head Graphics but there is Troy Lee and others on the web. It costs as much as a new helmet but it's totally worth every penny. You get not only a work of art but a personal expression of you and it's something you have to have anyway. ;)
