Throwbacks and retro lids are nice, but nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first 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. BellÕs new Custom 500 pays homage to RichterÕs original design and adds modern protective technology to bring the design up-todate while still keeping the originalÕs aesthetic. By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. Adding custom paint-inspired graphics, chrome trim work (on some graphics) and a quilted liner, the Custom 500 custom looks as good as it performs.Features • Custom fiberglass shell, Weight: 880g.• Custom-quilted liner• Chrome trim (graphic dependent)• Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors• Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper• Five-year warranty

Comments about Bell Custom 500 RSD Freedom Machine Open Face Helmet:
Although the picture here has the 74 on it it is not what is available but getting past that i first ordered a medium according to size chart a touch small so the next size up was best, helmet is comfy fits the style of bike im riding and the colors as well, hard to put glasses on as the helmet doesnt allow them to go all the way back unless your glsses go down around the ear straight wont do. overal im happy. hope that helps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
