Bell Custom 500 Helmet

Bell Custom 500 Silver

Unfortunately my brother-in-law had to sell his Honda Ruckus, but I am going to mention the good in an otherwise sad situation.  I inherited his near new Limited Edition Bell Custom 500 helmet.

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 new 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 new Custom 500 custom looks as good as it performs.  Bonus points for the best Easy Rider reference… Several different colors and designs available (I happen to have the silver sparkle shown above).
