Tachibana motorcycle helmets

Here in Australia, it’s harder and harder to get hold of a vintage motorcycle helmet that complements a classic or custom motorcycle. Australia implements its own standards, an utterly pointless exercise given the accepted standards elsewhere. So when I see gear like these Japanese Tachibana helmets, it makes me envious. Tachibana has moved beyond the usual metalflake treatments and created a wider range of reproduction vintage motorcycle helmets. And with prices starting at around ¥12,000 (US$130), they’re good value too. Here’s a selection of their more oddball models, but rest assured, there’s some conventional Bell 500 type gear here too.
