CCFH specializes in installations of the Retro Brass, which is the original old style Maltese Cross Brass holder that was used until 1998. This holder needs to be custom cut, fitted, drilled, and riveted for each helmet, which is quite opposite to the new style brass that simply bolts onto existing holes in the leather. This style brass allows for a true old school look, and can be retrofitted to any leather helmet, any year, including the Phenix TL2 1500. Do not be fooled by the imitators - each brass job we do is done the "right" way, and you WILL get what you pay for.
