Couldn't find any info anywhere on this item so was hoping someone here might have some knowledge.

Can anyone ID the clear visor? Have searched the crap out of them and came up shy.

The helmet looks to be the exact same as Goose's minus the face guard.
If that's the case then this should be the clear visor (via madmaxcostumes.com):

Many thanks Taipan, was mainly focused on single, bubble style visors and getting nowhere fast.

Have even found a Bell version online that's the same price as your suggestion. Needed a cheap Bell RT for my Buckaroo Banzai helmet but ended up going with a replica, looks like will have to do the same here as a cheap, white one is even harder to find.

Found a spot on Bell replica here in Oz for under $50. When you flip the picture of Max and Fifi, you can see its an exact match

The Bell visor found on ebay is a very close match to the Goose one and as Taipan pointed out, safe to assume is the same one on Max`s

Got the replica helmet finished off and came in under budget. Added another little item of Max`s as well. "D" scale for those interested.
