1962 Bell Helmet (Distributed by Bates)
This helmet is pretty insane. I was just looking around on Ebay and wow, this has got to be the oldest 3/4 style Bell Helmet I've ever seen! What's even cooler is the early 60s Bates waterslide decal on the back. Plus, check out the double staps with leather underneath, probably for comfort, and nylon on top for added security! I'm sure this one will go for well over $500 and is a likely candidate for the Garage Company display case!
