Perhaps a bit of an odd one this...
I was in my local charity store and spotted this (empty :?: ) box on a top shelf. Took a few pics for prosperities sake – classic nineties deisgn :lol:
That's Hans Rey and Mr Tomac gracing those tastefully angled photos.

Nice, brings back memories, sure I've got one of those boxes and helmet round my folks somewhere (unless they have chucked it out).

Will has to have a look for it

Best.Helmet.Ever. At least that's what I'm seeing through my rose tinted specs!
There were options for everything back in the day but I seem to remember the Bell Image being THE defacto standard for a helmet.

My helmet of choice in the early/mid 90's, sure I have the box still somewhere too.

From the days before helmet visors/peaks :-)
