Schatz Purple Haze

Schatz Purple Haze

Price: $1820

Darren Schatz sent us this Bell Auto race helmet to have custom painted after a forgetable and inspiring evening of custom helmet paintwork brainstorming.  In a purple haze, Darren and Duane sketched elements and ideas for Darren's dirt track race lid on a napkin...  starting with the idea of the M16 tattooed on the head of the bald prisoner in American History X, evil mohawked skulls, LogiKill and Bad decisions, song lyrics, and of course, a bottle of Jag later, through the haze, I was presented with a napkin that had so many forgotten meaningfull thoughts in it,  I wasn't sure where to start.   Using Darren's specific ideas,  keeping everything dark and somewhat evil, using his race number, Kandy Brandywine, and a grim reaper with his hood down manning dual AR's, the helmet turned out to be exactly what Mr. Schatz wanted.  To this day I don't think that he has gotten into his racecar with it on. He doesn't want to beat it up.  He wears his old trashed helmet so that his epic evening can be represented by our unchipped helmet painting project.  Kinda like that old guy in Moto triple X.  "Why don't you wear a helmet?"  "aww I've got a new one,  I keep it in the truck so it doesn't get scratched"...
