British Bikes / 30's goggles what is this material
« on: August 25, 2009, 05:15:13 AM »
1920/30's motorcycle goggles. owner story says these goggles were worn on long motorcycle trip late 20's early 30's then moth balled.
the glass lenses are very good as are the rims, to make usable again I would like to know what material was used for sealing against face.
doesnt appear to be fur as there is no hide  looks similar to carpet but has no backing.Just what is this fluffy stuff.
cheers tony
