Dreams became reality a Coalville Biker this Christmas Eve, as Bennetts Biking Dreams paid him a visit with news his dream is to be fulfilled.
Simon Young has been a biker since the age of sixteen and has a strong passion for intricately designed helmets such as those worn by his biking heroes Valentino Rossi and John Reynolds. Young’s dream is to visit helmet design company Starline, who work on helmets for the likes of Nicky Hayden and Pol Espargaro.
Young wanted to add an Arai RX-7RC to his collection, a rare carbon fibre Arai with a maximum export production of just three hundred per year. Courtesy of Bennetts Biking Dreams, Young will be getting his hands on the rare lid but not until Starline have painted it in Young’s own design.
“It’s absolutely brilliant - it has been a fantastic year for me and this just tops 2013 off” said Young on receiving his prize. “To think that I am going to meet Roby and the Starline team is just amazing, I am completely speechless.
“I have always had a passion for motorcycle helmets and to think that my dream is going to become a reality is just fantastic. I am already starting to think about what type of design and colours I’d like!”
