|The finished product, all done up with leopard print duct tape!|
I fell in love with a stylish leopard print helmet first spotted on Eleanor's bike shop many years ago. I was tired of my Bell helmet and very disappointed also that after only three years, the bright, highly visible yellow color had drastically faded - in some places it was nearly white. I could have replaced the helmet altogether, however, it was an opportunity to be creative, the helmet should have a little life left, and I still enjoyed the model, especially the rear bracket, a feature which most helmets do not have, providing an extra place to clip a taillight.
|An Xacto knife was the perfect tool to cut duct tape.|
|Almost there, just the rim to go.|
|Total time, about two hours.|
So with half a roll of leopard tape left, what's a girl going to do? Hmmm, I have another idea...
