Looking for a crappy old helmet

My sister and her family are big on themed Halloween costumes. This year they're doing some of the cast from "Wreck it Ralph". On of the characters is named Turbo and is basically an old 60's/70's style race car driver with an old Shoei style 3/4 helmet. She's been to thrift stores and hasn't found anything. The cheapest we can seem to find is $25. She doesn't want to spend that much. This thing is NEVER going to be ridden with. It's just for a Halloween costume.

If anyone's got an old 3/4 bubble helmet sitting around that they're not overly attached to and willing to sell cheap, by all means, hit me up

Give me a yell in a week if you don't get one.
I have some old ones not much good, shipping probably cost more than a helmet though.

Will do. It really can be total hunk of junk. We're just going to paint it anyway. I'm just kind shocked how hard it can be to find old beat up brain bucket these days. Shoulda kept that old one my dad carried for 30 some odd years.
