Preserving a signiture on a helemt

Hey guys, I have just bought a signed John Mcguinness helmet and am wanting to use it for road use and was wondering if any one had any idea of how to preserve the signiture? 


Was thinking of something like that bike sheild? But has anyone done any thing like this before ?

The seat unit on my track bike

is signed by Cal Crutchlow. I have covered it with bike shield type stuff. I know someone who had his SP1 front mudguard signed by Colin Edwards. Chuffed as fkk he went home, removed the mudguard and sprayed it with lacquer! Well, the solvents buggered up the marker pen ink! Not happy so don't do that!

My Cal one tho still looks great but it does look obviously covered so not perfect. Any better ideas would be interesting.....

i got a

99 Blade screen signed by Leon haslam, Cal Crutchlow, Ron Haslam and Tadao Baba..(Father Fireblade) :)  and ive preserved that by not putting it on the bike...

Learner.. even covering it with bike shield or a clear film may stop it rinsing out or wiping off, however, continued frequent use will cause the marker pen to fade over time fron UV/sunlight exposure and i dont think there is anything on the market that will prevent that that would be safe to put on a helmet........ :(

venture shield

works for me. Got Chris Walker to sign my replica about 3 years ago. Worn it in all weathers since, and it's fine!

I got

Valentino Rossi to sign the old bubble screen on my gixxer in 2005, I rode it home, took the screen off and stuck it up in the attic....

It now has a protective 4mm thick layer of dust over it... where it shall remain for a while!

I'll let you know what kind of protection dust provides one day.. :tongue: personally, if you really value it, you should store it cos it aint just weather... If you come off and fuck the lid up you aint gonna be a happy bunny are ya???

:wink:

5 years later and looks great

Agostini signed a double bubble screen that I put on my F4. This was done 5 years ago and was not covered or protected. The silver autograph still looks great.
