      Throwbacks and retro motorcycle helmets are nice, but nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first motorcycle 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. The all new Bell Custom 500 Open-Face Motorcycle Helmet 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 lay-up with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a motorcycle helmet that is at once lightweight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. Adding custom paint-inspired graphics, chrome trim work and a quilted liner, the Bell Custom 500 Motorcycle Helmet looks as good as it performs.
    • Lo-profile design.
    • Custom fiberglass shell.
    • Custom-quilted liner.
    • Chrome trim.
    • Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors.
    • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper.
    • DOT certified.
    • Fire-year warranty.
    • For proper fit and size measure the circumference of your head 1" above your eyebrows and around the largest portion of the back of your head.

    nice helmet
    i really like the helmet, it fits snugg and comfortable. Its a nice change from the full motocross helmets im used to. No complaints except that it makes me look like a dork from the 70's but ehh, whats new.

    Best open-face there is
    I've got a giant head. It's something I've come peace with. Normally open face helmets look ridiculous on me but this one manages to look great and function well. The head sizing is accurate (got the xxl) but even with my head the helmet is light weight and still stays stylish. Go for it.

    Nice looking metal flake, some imperfections.
    Sparkles and shines, fit is on par with Arai sizing. Some impurities in the clear coat put a blemish on an otherwise great looking hat. Nice quilting inside and leather accents too. Standard D-rings are simple and effective to use. A good buy at a good price, they fit tighter on your head and prevent that, "ready to shoot out of a cannon" look that many other helmets have.
