 TLD, you know what would be outstanding? If you did a production run of dean lucas's helmet. Its freaking amazing!

 Second that! I would buy one...

 It's pretty decent, but considering every single other one just looks like a billboard it's an easy win. I'm gettin old, but i swear it was just a couple years ago that most of the helmets and bikes still had a lot more style paint wise.

 We don't have a massive 'dead Mexican' thing going on in Australia, so not sure how it's really repping Oz.....

 @lostlunchbox: What about Blenki's - stylish and understated, compared to the rest that scream "look at me! I'm soooo colorful!"

 My wife keeps saying she wants to see Braytons helmet

 Was that the legend of Throbbing Hood?

 @Theguyfromthealps: nope it was the other film , “the northerner in me”

 Reece Wilson's helmet = David Coulthard's helmet Smile
  • + 7
 David coulthard invented the Scottish flag, anyone else who uses it must pay royalties.

 @spaceofades:

I'd heard that David Coulthard won the flag, and all future royalties, from Sean Connery in a late night game of "Drinky, Drinky, Stab, Stab" during Glasgow Burn's Night festivities in 1999...

 Isn't the back and the top where most of the design goes into? These side shots seem to be purely for the benefit of the sponsor logos. Not hating on sponsorship, but maybe multiple angles if you feel the need to include them? Edit: The little bits you can see don't look much more exciting ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 What’s Monkey’s sauce? I can’t quite make out what’s on Blenki’s helmet either. In the low res mobile pic it look old like there’s a guy taking a squat! Need to switch over to the computer to really see these things. Doesn’t matter though Dean Lucas clearly has it. Wyn’s Maori theme is cool too.

 Monkey's Sauce is Cedric Gracia's tire sealant brand...

 Why is there no mention of any of the painters in all there articles about custom paint? Appreciate the coverage of course but give credit where its due

 They should be getting props for this work, I agree

 Juding by the amount of votes for Brook Macdonald I'm guessing I'm not going to find favour here, but here goes anyway:

Does anyone else just find Red Bull livery just looks shit? No matter what it's on, and Red Bull sponsors an awful lot of stuff, it just looks so haphazard and same-same bland.
  • + 6
 I can just about live with red bull. But Monster. Monster is sh!t all the way to the bank. When I think of Monster, all I see is chav kids being loud and wrecking stuff in the street or Lexemoto Adrenalin 125cc bikes with L plates covered in the weird green M being ridden like its stolen
Its also a product with no purpose-as I must add is Red Bull. “Think I might just have a quick can of illness and teeth rot thankyou very much!”

 I wish they showed better pics of their helmets. MacDonald's has a pic of what I believe to be his grandfather on the top. It looks like a great tribute. As far as the red bull livery, I can see it being taken as played out. It's just so instantly recognizable now and I'll always love it like I was some 16 year old squid.
  • + 1
 I get you, they are very similar all the time. I thought Brooks was a nice new twist in it with the new Zealand feather allowing the design though and darkening the rest of the design. I wouldn't usually vote for a Red Bull lid but this one just struck me

 ho hum. a lotta underwhelming decals and tape work being showcased here. i suppose you can call it custom painting. for me, the only custom one is the dead mexican design. its cool.

 Luca Shaw going full Bumble Bee. He might win it.

 The redbull paints are so boring!

 Jack Moir's one is the best to me ????

 Creativity is obviously saved for line choices, most of these look crap and the good ones average.
