The '500-TX' designed and made by TT&Company in Tokyo, Japan.
Based on the Jet helmet developed for racing by Bell Helmet’s in the 1950’s and is said to be the original shape of the small Jet helmet, displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1962.
It is the ultimate small shell helmet, fitting snuggly to the head and characterised by the shape that covers both cheeks.
There is a goggle closure at back of the helmet.
Not a safety helmet for riding motorcycles, but a COOL helmet for exhibition, display and collection.
