1960’s Mike Hailwood Original Period Pudding Basin Replica Isle of Man TT Helmet
Original pudding basin style helmet like the one used by Mike Hailwood in the glory days of the 1960’s.
A nine-time world champion, Hailwood won 76 Grand Prix races during his motorcycle racing career, including 14 Isle of Man TT victories and four consecutive 500 cc world championships. After his motorcycle racing career concluded, he went on to compete in Formula One and other classes of car racing, becoming one of the few men to compete at Grand Prix level in both motorcycle and car racing. He returned to motorcycle racing at the age of 38, taking victory at the 1978 Isle of Man TT.
Hailwood died in 1981 following a road accident near his home in Warwickshire UK.
This helmet’s history is unknown. Purchased from a large private collection, we are unable to find an exact photo match or verify it was one to have be used by Hailwood. Therefore we have listed it here as a replica and as great example of one like the helmets he used during that period.
