Arai UK and TheVisorShop.com have launched a new Limited Edition RX7-GP Joey Dunlop 1985 Replica Helmet as part of this year’s celebration of Joey’s unique career at the Classic TT.
Each of the 300 helmets will be numbered and come with a matching numbered certificate, which will be hand signed by Joey's widow Linda. Crossan Motorcycles visorshop.com site is the exclusive European retailer.Arai say it's the most authentic limited edition Joey Dunlop replica helmet produced using the actual design and sponsor logos from 1985. The helmet will be a Celebration of Joey Dunlop's success throughout his racing career, particularly the 1985 Isle of Man TT Races where he scored three wins: the ‘Junior TT’; the ‘Formula 1 TT’ and the Blue Riband ‘Senior TT’. Joey also had three first places at the Ulster GP and two at the NW200 in the same year.
The design prominently features Northern Ireland radio station DownTown Radio who sponsored Joey during 1985 and had the radio station logo on the side of his iconic yellow and black helmet.
The helmets are due to arrive at the end of July 2014 and thevisorship.com will dispatch orders in the sequence they are received. It is anticipated that the helmet could sell out in pre-orders alone so thevisorshop.com is taking advance orders now with full payment. The helmet comes with Clear Visor, cloth helmet bag and pin-lock anti-fog insert.
“I am happy that the new Arai has come about, "Joey’s widow Linda Dunlop commented. "It looks great and I know that Joey’s fans from around the world have been looking for another replica to be done by Arai. It keeps Joey’s memory alive. I am also happy that Northern Ireland company Crossan’s TheVisorShop.com are taking care of the sales and mail order of the new helmet."
