    I recently purchased a 77 r75/7 and am thinking about getting a full face helmet. I want to get something that will be safe, but also have a nice vintage look to it.

    I currently ride a cb650 cafe and wear a Arther Fulmer AF40 with a bubble shield and I love it.

    I am leaning towards waiting until the Biltwell Gringo comes out and going with that. Any other suggestions?

    I dig Roof Boxer helmets for the vintage look

    They are modular so you can run them 1/2 or full

    Looks like something out of 'Halo'. Very cool. Does it come with a matching jetpack?

    I tried a full face and went back to an open face which is much quieter. I know it's not as safe but I like it and take the responsibility on myself. I should probably try a flip front next time.

    Unlike the Boxer picture above I would never allow my wife on the pillion to wear an open face. Not to mention riding without gloves.

    The Bullitt helmet reminds me of a Griffin clubman I had for 14 years. I like that.

    It's like they made the helmet just for me and my bumbleebee :)

    Sort of. It's a combination of my Photoshop work and a sign shop. The graphics are vehicle wrap vinyl. Great stuff.
