Time to replace the face shield in my Kaberg

its not that its scratched up, but rather that the coating has crazed, PLUS stitching on the helmet padding is comming apart. the helmet, highly rated by Web Bike world on lime and buy the independent testing site in the UK, isn't sold in the USA so replacement parts come from across the pond like the helmet did. When I add up the price for just those two items, i start looking at the cost to buy another new helmet? This one is a little over two years old, BUT since I don't own a car any more, put on and take off a helmet many times during every week.

And, i'm wondering if I should shop for a passenger helmet, one that has one basic shell with different padding to accomodate different sized female heads? Maybe one Large helmet and old socks I use for rags to stuff the helmet with to make it fit passengers? :-))
