Just wanted to add an OG Flyaway thread to the collector corner since the re-issue has now taken over! I love Marshall's stuff & own two of his helmets. His work is incredible. With that said ... I finally received my first OG Flyaway.

Hope other dudes post their OG's here. These helmets are insane & incredible history. Most of us guys, when we were kids, dreamed of owning one but none could afford. Luckily scored this one from the pro skater Dan Murray. Dan is an incredibly "super under-rated" skater from Florida that "flowed" for Powell Peralta between 79 & 83. Thanks for the history Dan!!! This dome is displayed with pride in my Skate One Asia location!

Nice OG Tuck! Those groms in the background looked mesmorized. Glad ya saved some classic pics from Skate City

WTF .. why did ya dump all your Flyaways? Did ya give them to the garbage man or just run out of storage

Kept mine for years becasue I loved it so much. I actually wore it as a motorcycle helmet when I stopped skating in the early 80s. I suspect my c_nt exwife tossed it, along with a lot of my other stuff, when we split up. I guess to prove that she really was a c_nt.

Shovelheadave ... I didn't know you & I were married to the same lady LOL

Agree Kid ... these guys saved some classic photos.

Kinda curious about the production history of the OK Flyaway. You see these popping up on ebay time to time & always wonder if they are OG.
