What kinds of helmets are you guys wearing when riding? I'm concerned that when I'll soon be riding my '59 Jaguar resto and eventually my prewars that I'm going to look like a noob (more so than usual) with a corny, flashy new style helmet.

I know riders from the prewar days and 50s/60s prob didn't wear helmets, but I have to as I have kids right! Gotta set the example.

Someone on here brought up this site before, some of these helmets are as low as $23 and they look excellent! They come with no safety admissions, but they cover your head and I bet they will take care of the same sort of things that a Walmart bike helmet will.

Seriously, those prices seem way low... Cool helmets too

Does anybody else think a Cobra Commander helmet would be cool?

Looks like you are pretty much correct:

Subtotal $22.99
Estimated Sales Tax $0.00
Estimated Shipping $34.90
Total $57.89

Yikes.

Of course the cool watermelon one up there (sold out) costs $60 before shipping... yikes again!
