Artist Series Bell Helmets

Bell1Bell2Both are based on the famous 3/4 Bell 500 (the one I wear in its plain version…) They both pay tribute to Bell founder Roy Richter who created the 500 helmet in 1954 out of fiberglass. Not retro lids but current offerings priced at $139.95. On left the Skratch Bonneville, on right the RSD Trouble. Bell Helmets.

    Yeah…. but you weren’t wearing a black plain version last week were you? 🙂

    Me no like the chrome rail they have on the other 500’s either.
    To me here in California, being able to order unpressed hashish from a delivery service, that has a presentation of non-smashed, ripe, resin gland snowflakes leaves me with the impression that the extraction process is extraterrestrial and beyond the bounds of earth.
    It’s become evident to me that my thoughts are precursors to the future, and proven time and time again. I can’t help it, it’s a curse.
    So, with that in mind, this retro offering from Bell is going to gain traction as “the new thing” society has been waiting for. Bring on the Art-Deco:

    With autumn around the corner, I’m considering an open face (3/4) helmet. My concerns i whether I can wear my Vaurnet cat-eye sunglasses under my helmet without being rankled by the compressed pressure the sunglasses temple arm sandwiched between the insulation and my head.
    Here is a youth sporting thin-frame aviators under his Bell®, but was he in mute agony and hid it from the camera? We don’t know.

    So, should I purchase a trendy lithograph Bell or spend more money for an ad-dult carbon fiber version. The carbon fiber will take no less than 34 days to arrive. These are the decisions that make up what is commonly referred to as “life”.
