Motorcycling, at its core, is an inherently old-school experience. It’s most obvious in the forms of Italianate cafe racers and Steppenwolf-conjuring cruisers and choppers, but even the most modern of sport bikes is ultimately a simple machine in principle: two wheels, one engine, a fuel tank and a smattering of metal to hold it all together and make it work. All the technology available on modern bikes doesn’t change that even a high-tech Harley-Davidson LiveWire offers just as much protection as riding a horse.
So if you’re embracing the retro aspect of riding, why not snag an old-school-cool motorcycle helmet to go with it? Right now, the good folks over at RevZilla have a whole category of retro helmets that meld traditional appearances with modern safety technology (safety being, of course, the reason you’re wearing that helmet in the first place) for savings approaching half off the usual price. We picked out a handful that caught our eye, but if none of them get your motor running, you can see even more great retro lids here.
