"NOT RETRO. ORIGINAL."
Throwbacks and retro lids are nice, but nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fiberglass and named it the “500.” That moment was ground zero for the modern motorsport helmet and it gave rise to an entire industry. Bell’s Custom 500 pays homage to Richter’s original design and adds modern protective technology to bring the design up-to-date while still keeping the original’s aesthetic. By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. Adding custom paint-inspired graphics, chrome trim work (on some graphics) and a quilted liner, the Custom 500 looks as good as it performs.

Bought an old 1983 Honda. This helmet matches it perfectly. Looks old, but it's brand new and solid. Not a lot of peripheral noise and pretty comfy. Definitely recommend. Plus, the customer service at Helmet City. Top Notch.
