My father just got back from overseas and brought me back a helmet. I will snap a picture of it later, but here is, essentially, what it is:

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

Made by NDN Plastics of Portugal, this was the helmet that my grandfather and every moped/vespa owner was rockin back in the day! My grandfather's was red-orange I remember. And yes..those are ear-wind guards! Nerd emoticon

It offers minimal protection and is not DOT (or EU) legal, unlike the helmet I regularly use. It is mostly an artifact and for pictures or the odd morning ride to the bakery.

The visor is very very cool, as are the ear-deflectors! LOL.

At the cost of 21 Euros, you can't ask for much more!

This looks like Mods Vs Rockers parade gear.

My original helmet (1961) was fiberglass shaped like that, made like a laminated GI helmet liner, painted white, with a visor, but no leather sides. I only wore it when I had to go on the Marine base where it was required.

I like my chin and teeth so a Full-face is de rigueur.
