Old hat

  1. I saw this in the motorcycle parking area at work.

    old hat 001.

    It's a Shoei S25, it's 40 years old, someone's still using it and they don't want it to get away.

  8. Hehehe hi Ned..
    Actually my wife and I had matching S25 helmets: mine was blue striped, and her's was red, just like the picture above. It WAS a very innovative helmet: the main body was fibreglass, and the lower part was ABS plastic, making it very light by comparison with Bells and other brands.

  9. it matches NedNed's veedub also!

    I wear a Bell Bullitt as I used to have an old bucket on my head in the 80's and love the simple style with the wide open look - it's like an open face helmet with a chin piece!

  11. Maybe they are using it and have secured it because some low life scum stole their other one
