Vintage Bell Magnum And Vintage Bell R-T Side by Side







Here are two vintage Bell helmets from the same period side by side. The silver helmet is an early Magnum. The visor is a Bell 520. The color and the visor give it that Steve McQueen look. The white helmet is an early R-T. If you look closely at the side view you will see the chin strap attachment rivets are positioned differently on each helmet. The lining on the silver helmet is of higher quality, a terrycloth type material. The shape of the shell looks the same to me. A tale of two Bells.
