    Pretty sure the full face helmets here are designed after the original racing helmets. The back of the helmet, as you can plainly see, is/was a lot longer than any modern helmet. The helmet stopped being used in racing because it caused numerous broken necks. So yeah, rad helmet if you want a broken neck.

    You’re really stupid if you even consider wearing one of these. Not trying to be a dick or funny, just trying to give people a heads up.

    The bell moto 3 has the exact back profile height (just smaller) as the modern shoie full face, I know cuz I own both..the first pic shows a lot of different helmets, but the old mx helmets, especially those griffins and bell moto 3 in the pic, are not quite as low as the bell stars. Granted they aren’t snell or dot or whatever to today’s standards.

    Those bell stars are spaceman all the way

    The Japanese spend top bucks on vintage stuff, much more than most Americans…I was shocked to see how much a shitty old american leather jacket was in tokyo’s hip boroughs. Wabi sabi is the philosophy that pertains to this value in older objects…at least I think that’s what I remember…I was bombed.

    Todd, you’re killin’ my helmet boner!

    Yes Todd, killing mine as well. Yes, there’s a decent chance it’ll break your neck, but so will the 3/4 helmets – same issue (not to mention the smashed face). But, vanity is a bitch…
