Default Places to buy AutoX helmets in Chicago?

Hey,

Can anyone recommend a place where I can get an helmet for autoX? The closer to downtown, the better. Thanks.

How fast do you need one? If you need one for this weekend any motorcycle shop will do. It just needs to be Snell 95 or newer I believe. If you can wait a week go to saferacer.com

google pegasus racing development/company - something along those lines, you can get a open face helmet for like $150.00.

Northstar is a nice place, but its waaay up in boofoo and the helmets are pretty pricey.

Don't need it for 2 weeks.

I thought I could get a full face for 200 bucks. Guess that's not possible.
However, it seems like M rated helmets are cheaper than SA. In that case, I suppose going to a motorcycle shop should do it.

Touge Factory isn't to far out of town. I was there last night. The prices are fair too. Check them out. Talk to Mike, he seemed to know his ****.
