Stunning new lids from Birkinhead

Regualr readers will know I like a Davida helmet. And I was a big fan of their “Cosmic Candy” range… which I thought would set off a 70’s style skelly to a tee… Well, now you’ve got even more choice from the Birkinhead helmet artisans. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… I present metalflake!David Metalflake

I can do no better than quote from their press release… “The attention to detail, the depth of light and colour: the visual effect of the results is stunning. Davida helmets feel wonderfully luxurious and protective given their snug fitting and leather-lined construction and are well proven for all types of riding adventures.”

Pricewise, they’re not the cheapest helmets on the market, but quality never is is, is it? And the one thing you don’t want to be scrimping on is a bash hat. Davida Jet & Ninety2 RRP £378. Davida Speedster RRP £365 + VAT

With their international reputation for integrating the finest features of traditional open face helmets into modern safety products, all Davida’s supremely comfortable range of helmets are now available in more than 100 different colour ways. See the website for full details.

Emme Lou’s Lambretta Imagery

Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.29.06I came across Emma’s photography on Flickr, and had to feature it on the blog! A freelance photographer, based in Birmingham,  she has had a passion for bikes and scooters since she was a young girl…  even burning her leg on the exhaust of her dad’s Honda CB250N Superdream as girl didn’t put her off! Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.27.17  I’m sure you’ll agree from the stunning images here, that Emma has a great ‘eye’ and really captures the essence of the machines she shoots. Of course having some fantastic scoots to shoot doesn’t hurt 🙂Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.25.50Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.20Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.39Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.50Over the last few years Emma’s photography career has started to take off, and she has recently acquired a contract with a scooter restoration specialist… so hopefully you’ll be seeing a lot more of her work soon… there’s talk of a range of products for the Lambretta market, and I’ll feature what I can on the blog.Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.23.51Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.24.17Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.25.20

Emma’s scooter photography is just the tip of the iceberg, she’s happy to photograph almost anything, if you’ve got a project for her, get in touch through her Flickr account, here, where you’ll find more Lambretta imagery and get a flavour of her other work.

As usual with these things, please respect the copyright of the work,  and don’t use any of the imagery without asking. © All rights reserved, Emme-Lou.

I want candy…

What’s better than candy? Cosmic Candy of course… and that’s the name of the range of helmets from British manufacturer Davida. Colourways that have been inspired by the ‘candy apple’ paint effect popularised within the American Hot Rod,  Chopper, and then the UK Scootering scene. They’d look great with any classic Lammie… but particularly if you’ve got a ’70’s style skelly!DavidaCandyColourwaysThe new Cosmic Candy range is launched in six colours, Cosmic Candy Silver-150, Cosmic Candy Red-151, Cosmic Candy Blue-155, Cosmic Candy Yellow-153, Cosmic Candy Green-154 & Cosmic Candy Burgundy -152

All Davida helmets are available in any one of the 100 colourways in their distinctive range and traditional colours. Inspired by racers and street cultures of the past, from burning flame of the road racers to the checks, national flags and pinstripes of street culture, each design is individually created by hand using time-honoured techniques and lacquered to a high quality finish. They also offer a bespoke service to create your own colourway.

The new Cosmic Candy range of colourways are available on any Davida helmet model. RRP UK is £265.00 for the Davida Jet and Ninety2. Davida Speedster & Classic helmets RRP UK £220.83 ex VAT.Davida LogoCheck out their website for more info, including the range of products and distributors and dealers worldwide..
