1996 Dave Shultz Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Race Used Helmet
Dave Schultz is one of, if not the greatest motorcycle drag racers who ever and is revered as the godfather of Pro Stock Motorcycle.
A true perfectionist and a fierce competitor, Schultz was a pioneer of the “gasoline and carburetor” class. He amassed six NHRA championships and 45 victories. Schultz is the only motorcycle drag racer to win the coveted, early 90s triple crown NHRA, IDBA and AMA/Prostar championship in the same year. He accomplished the feat twice, 1991 and 1994. When Schultz was on his game there was little his competition could do.
Schultz elevated the categoryies level of professionalism. No one ever saw Schultz in an old set of leathers his motorcycle in less than best of show condition. Schultz’s attention to detail was unmatched and his entire operation was always immaculate. Schultz was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2001.
This helmet was part of the Ron Burton collection.
Shultz’s outstanding and legendary 23 year career came to an end with his untimely death from cancer in 2001.
