Found a Vintage Full Face Helmet!
Sometimes the best place to find something is where you wouldn't normally look. Such was the case with my "new" 1970 Arai full face helmet. There is a little antique mall near my house but the booths are about 95% craft and party supplies. I stop in there about once a month because sometimes I find something cool. Yesterday I did a quick walk through and spotted a 90's Harley-Davidson jean vest. I definitely didn't want it but it made me take a second look at the other stuff in the booth. Right above the HD junk was this really nice black helmet. It looks like it has only been worn a couple of times. You never know what you'll find at a craft mall so keep your eyes peeled!
While researching the helmet I found this cool timeline on the history of Arai helmets.
