This is a 1966 vintage easy rider style/ stars and stripes vintage motorcycle helmet. It's in about as nice shape as i have ever seen an original mid sixties bobber helmet.  I mean i cant say mint but it's definetaly excellent as far as i'm concerned and i feel confident in saying that. It wasnt worn but a handfull of times through out it's life thats for sure.

                        The size is 61/2 -6 5/8 (s).  The buttons have no rust and very little oxidation at the most,  as well as the strap rings,,,all metal is in great shape.  The padding is in great shape as-well! The top of the helmet looks to be missing any liner or felt that was there unless it was just the black foam exposed back when it was made, not sure.  The pics show this helmet very well, and it's bubble shield is in good shape as well. The shield is what came on the helmet when i got it, it is a model -158 made by poulson mfg, made in usa as was the helmet made in the usa also.  The helmet and shield are just awsome to look at, and a great reminder of how cool our motorcycle gear was back in the good ole sixties! 

 

                    There are very little scuffs or scratches to speak of on the helmet and some very fine scrapes and smudges on the shield but nothing serious by anymeans.  Literally this helmet looks like it was worn a few times back in it's day and then sat in a box!  The straps are in fantastic shape along with the rings.  This is the real deal and the helmet is 46 years old so keep that in mind, it's not perfect!! But I challenge anyone to find a authentic 1966 easyrider helmet in better shape, because they probably couldnt.  The rubber trim is in excellent shape to.   Even the stickers saying the year size and made in usa are all in great shape.

 

                               Please keep in mind that it's a very old helmet so it's not entirely perfect, but I cant state enough how nice this one is, and you wont be dissapointed.  This helmet is for the serious collector or the individual that has a mint vintage bike and wants the old school helmet thats just as nice to compliment the bike when thier riding.  I welcome all the questions you may have, bid with confidence, i list anything i sell accurately and with nothing to hide. Please feel free to check my feedback.

 

                         Lastly this helmet and shield are not some modern day copy, it's a real 1966 stars and stripes and it is probably my most prized helmet out of my collection. I hate to sell it.      Please bid with confidence, what you see in the pics is what will arrive at your doorstep. Please no bids outside the continental us, unless contacting me first for a shipping quote.  IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A SUPERB ONE OF THESE, !!THIS IS IT!!  Good Luck!
