500-TX 1 for the Road
Style: 1 for the Road
This is a One-Off helmet, so no other helmet will ever be identical to it. A collaboration with Bristol traditional sign writer Coop at Dapper signs. This helmet is ‘1 for the Road’ on a medium Ivory 500-TX with brown leather rim shot, but could be any one of our helmets with your own idea or give Coop some inspiration and he’ll create something custom designed and hand crafted.
These helmets are built by hand.
Real leather machine sewn on the rim portion of the helmet.
The stitching is sewn with one needle stitch all the way through the helmet shell with a thick thread for durability.
Brown cowhide leather thickness is 3.5mm .
Produced with Japanese-made vegetable tanning.
The leather trim gives you that nice vintage look and feel.
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.
