I peel them off the helmets of guys who use them after they crash ;)

Loco Leon (Noel) seems to know where to find them - he has a closet full of them I think.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

As you have discovered, they are difficult to find, and because of that the price is fairly high as well.
I have a Vintage JT Racing that I "had" to have, so I was willing to pay the market value.
Supply and demand, if you throw enough money at someone, they (I) may part with them.
 
Noel was my supplier, he will have to chime in on what if any his stash looks like.
Bottom line, expect to pay over a hundo for one (JT Racing that is)

I looked around for those, but since I'm a cheap bastard I ended up going with an Emgo mx econo goggle and mask.  My expectations were low, but I actually like it for what it is.  It's cheaply made, but it has saved me from a few bird sized moths while riding.

When you can't find or afford one, you make one.

Neoprene Ski Half Masks and goggles work fine if you don't have to have a hard mask.

well folks... this is the very last vintage mask that I have.

This is a first generation JT racing mask with the original "Sinisalo" sticker on it.
I've never seen another mask like this every. Its more rare than a 2 headed skunk.

I"ll bet my entire bike collection that you'll never see another one like it! :)











So its up for grabs, and its not gonna be cheap...

If anyone is interested, let me know...
