Wow! Surprised that the foam gasket hasn't turned to dust by now. Anyone remember or better yet, have a picture of the one piece goggle and face/dust mask the MXers used to wear in the 70's.

Hey be nice to us, seasoned riders. :bonk:

Those were Scott's, and they did a pretty good job of keeping roost outta your grill. You see sonny, afore we had them their new-fangled fancy chin piece's on our helmet's-we rode open faced. J/K

I can remember riding with a half bucket, when I was 9. :applause:

yea those old helmets were nice

HERE you go, don't think it's the Scott one but you get the idea. Alot of guy's back in the day wore what was called a Jofa that helped with the roost.

Damn , I feel old. :bonk: I see all those and can actually remember wearing them. :applause:

I didn't quit wearing them till the 90s. I was just too cheap to buy new gear.

Here's a 1970 Premier Vintage Helmet.
