When it comes to retro or vintage bikes it is always important to have your gear match the vibe of your ride and for many years that meant wearing either an open face helmet or putting on a crusty old Bell Star or Buco Allsport if you wanted a fullface helmet that looked the part. Well, thanks to the wonderful folks over at Biltwell, the Gringo is here to wrap your head in a combination of old school style and modern safety.
The DOT certified Gringo helmet is built to suit the needs of contemporary riders, with a beautifully crafted diamond stitched removable liner, an eyeport that accepts pretty much any type of goggle you could want to wear, as well as 5 snaps that work with any universal 3-snap shield, Biltwell’s own Bubble shield or their 5-snap Blast shield. So next time you hop on your chop or throw a leg over your bike leave that vintage helmet on the shelf where it belongs and grab a Gringo.
• Injection-molded ABS outer shell with hand-painted finish.
• Expanded polystyrene inner shell.
• Hand-sewn removable brushed Lycra liner with contrasting diamond-stitched quilted open-cell foam padding.
• Internal BioFoam chin pad with hand-sewn contrast stitching.
• Rugged plated steel D-ring neck strap with adjustment strap end retainer.

• DOT Approved.

Synopsis: Big Enos (Pat McCormick) wants to drink Coors at a truck show, but in 1977 it was illegal to sell Coors east of the Mississippi River without a permit. Truck driver Bo "Bandit" Darville (Burt Reynolds) agrees to pick up the beer in Texas and drive it to Georgia within 28 hours. When Bo picks up hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), he attracts the attention of Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason).

| An unidentified stunt rider is seen posing with his 1914 Excelsior motorcycle outside a motordrome exhibit at the South Carolina State Fair in Columbia, SC c. 1915. This image is part of a small-ish collection donated by the Rochelle family of Durham and is now entirely digitized and up on the NC Archive Flickr page. Sidney E. Rochelle opened a bicycle repair shop on Corcoran Street in Durham in 1913. Shortly thereafter, he became a Harley-Davidson distributor and the rest is history. Rochelle operated his shop in downtown Durham for nearly 35 years.
