If you’ve been following Iconic, you know that we’re huge fans of Scott Russell – and we thought we’d mix things up by offering a signed helmet from his 1996 MotoGP season with Suzuki at no reserve to complement our listing for his 1993 WSBK Championship bike.
In addition to his storied WSBK career, Mr. Daytona spent two years in MotoGP with Lucky Strike Suzuki racing 500cc two-strokes. In the 1996 season, he placed 6th overall after competing in 13 races and earning 2 podiums. This helmet has been on display in our shop for a year – we acquired it as part of a collection of Suzuki MotoGP memorabilia from Suzuki super-fan Dean Morrice.
The livery was created by Troy Lee Designs and was so popular that Shoei ended up offering a production replica. Scott signed this helmet with a message of “Thanks Chris.” Find this Russell helmet for sale in Santa Monica, California with bidding up to $1,300 here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
