JIM who?

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Impact - rage-de­signs.co.uk

Reg­u­lar view­ers can’t have failed to have no­ticed ed­i­tor Jim’s dis­tinc­tive blue, black and red Shoei X-spirit II. It’s a replica of Ja­panese 250GP ace Masahiro Shimizu’s de­sign. Now six years old and smelling like a clogged drain, he’s re­tired it for a new X-spirit III (Shoei’s lat­est top line rac­ing lid) and had spray gun ace Mike at Rage De­signs give it the Shimizu treat­ment. He sprays six-time BSB champ Shakey Byrne’s lids, among oth­ers. A clas­sic de­sign like this would be around £450 with a 12 week wait – like all the best, Mike is in de­mand. Check him out at
