When you want that vintage style, go ahead and throw on that weather checked leather jacket, those broke in boots, but forget about that 30 year old helmet.  If you want the same level of protection as that old helmet, you might as well throw a pillow in a salad bowl and strap it to your head.  So what’s a rider to do if they want the complete retro look when they hit the road on their bike?  Well, now there is hope.  Helmet and goggle manufacturers have recognized the demand for vintage and retro styled helmets and have come out with some amazing designs that have all the style of the past, but with the safety advantages of modern helmets.  Below is a list of some […]
