One of the more interesting gifts received this year :lol: Its hand made to order from Poland, a beautiful dark brown aviators cap that will be very hard for me not to put on. Offering absolutely no protection and completely without DOT certificate why does this appeal to my sense of sight, touch, style and even smell?

I'm ashamed to say I will probably be seen wearing this around the neighborhood on the PCX in the spring. Looking for the proper era googles to finish this crazy steam punk look. Anyone know what I'm looking for in a google?

Why is it that I want one of these when it is so extremely hot in Thailand? It certainly caught my attention.

This is all a refreshing change from the earlier flouro/squid sanctimonious short stroking.

After exhausting efforts to find decent goggles online that vent and live up to the quality aviator cap I finally had to put 'hands on' at my local military surplus outlet. Many decent milspec goggles were available but prices were over the top for my novelty ensemble and rare occasion ride as i'm typically ATGATT unless its 100 degrees. These are fine... day/night set 30 bucks for both 8)

Nah. Need to be metal, rubber and leather. They look a bit gay pirate but made in China rather than assembled in India

To get something original you will have to bleed cash. People are not letting go of granddads service goggles without you'll paypay :roll: I don't see one in my future but I have all winter to hunt 8) But I would love a pair of these AN 6530's for sure!

Oddly, I have one of those, the whole setup, handmade in Poland to order by Sterkowski--the quality is impeccable, and it's quite warm. Visibility is excellent. Kind of makes one look like The Dark Knight.
