It has canvas type? ear guards/flaps (behind the ear padding) that are secured to the shell with the rivets/snaps as shown on the outside. No picture with me.

I am not sure it that material would be strong enough to hold in place.

yeah.. I agree.. Im not sure if its gonna work unless you drill holes into the helmet shell..
Check out the lid I just bought.. notice the leather flaps inside..

Malcolm Smith Motorsports is about a mile from where I live. He had a blowout parking lot sale a couple of months ago. I needed a new helmet for the upcoming racing season and he had HJC helmets on sale for $60. Unfortunately the design was called "Mutant". Butt ugly but I thought what the hell? Its for racing I should care what it looks like? Turn out I couldnt stand it. So I threw a quick rattlecan lick of paint on it. Not sure I like what I did but its better than what was on there.

Yes. I had a little bit of clear in a can and shot it and then hit it with some hand glaze to see if I could make it look something besides ugly. Its like the old saying. If you can't make it right, make it shiny.

Just about. Mine is the CL-16. Same design but no color. My wife said "Very Goth". I guess that was her way of saying ugly. The "arrows" are the same but where the color is was black and white. Thought I could tolerate it but couldn't.

I agree that is a little busy for my taste. So hey for $60 bucks and a little spray paint you have yourself a real nice lid.

I needed a Snell 2005 for the lakes racing next year and a Snell 2005 for $60 is unbeatable. A night with a couple of cans of paint and some masking tape and I at least don't have to wear a paper bag over my helmet!
