hello,well it doesn't get much more retro than this. This is an original vietnam era american GI's helmet.Bought at a car boot sale for a tenner and yes I do wear it on my bike.......occasionally, with my uber cool ray baans :lol:
If it was good enough for the grunts it's good enough for me. Saddle up ,lock and load.
Cheers

Way cool (well, hot actually)! I'd love to own a WWII German bloodpot, especially with SS decals on the side...

I'm contemplating this helmet issue and think that helmets is the only real cycling area where there's been a style improvement since the 1990's. A lot of early helmets were heavy minging things, wheras now helmets tend to look cool and alluring; especially if they involve Carbon Fibre.

Someone mentioned the adjustable Etto helmets so I thought I'd post a pic of mine. I still wear it for vintage rides, and it's probably the most comfortable helmet I own, including the new ones. Below the Etto are a couple more old helmets that I haven't seen any photos of in this thread. I don't wear these though, the Skid Lid is too small and the Bailen has no vents.

Etto Classic adjustable for size

Not sure why those pic's aren't showing up, maybe because I need 10 posts?
edit: Or not, since this post was my 10th. Am I doing something wrong? I know the photos are stored in a publicly accessible place.
