BMW Factory Helmets from the 1980s?

So....my 1985 R80RT came with a BMW factory helmet and helmet bag from 1985. REally crazy looking thing with lots of reflective tape. Is there any value in these as a collectors item? It's no good to wear but I know that the Honda HRC and Kawasaki factory helmets from the 80's are somewhat sought after.

I have all of the BMW helmets through the years plus a ton of parts and visors with the hope someday they will be collectible.

Wish granted. Though looking at it it is probably from the early 1990s, as it is a flip face and 80s flip faces are rare.








Here is my late 80's Honda HRC AGV:

Shuberth concept something.
I doubt that a helmet like this will have any value. If it was in mint condition maybe to some weird BMW collector.
Or if it had a specific history like it was the helmet that some one was wearing when they did something interesting.

Yeah the only thing that makes it remotely interesting is the little BMW logo all over the thing (most fell off when I was taking it out of the bag). It will make good shelf fodder but that's it. Personaly the Honda helmet and my Freddie spencer signature helmet are way more interesting.

It's a system 2 BMW helmet and it looks a tad shagged. It'd be worthless imho. A decent system 3 in almost new condition sold here in Oz recently on ebay for $115, with 2-3 bidders.

If in doubt throw it on Fleabay for $500, you mind find someone that can't live without it.
