Antique Padded Leather Cyclist Helmet


Padded leather cyclist’s helmet circa 1920s/1930s
Appropriate wear for age of the item. Inside in ink – Kauffman Jean – Jacques.

Bicycle helmets have only been around since the 1930s, when Bill Honeman led the charge to get effective head protection for himself and his professional bike racing colleagues. Since the introduction of the leather hairnet, bike helmets have changed dramatically. This is a collector’s item and not to be used for protection.
