Old School Bell Helmets-Worth Anything?
« on: May 21, 2014, 09:51:03 PM »
So while in the process of getting rid of most of my earthly possessions and putting the house up for sale, I have donated all my 'out of current rotation' gear to an MSF instructor at work who will distribute them to students and such. Today I gave him my mint condition Bell M2, circa 1985-ish. He didn't want to take it, and said that it was worth cash to some collectors. I told him sell it, it his now. He said he was going to put it on ebay, and give me the cash. I said sell it you want, and if you really feel convicted about it, since you went to the trouble to list and ship it, I'll split it with ya.

I doubt that they go for much...but what do I know? what do you know?

I searched eBay Sold listings for "bell helmet"

$410 was the highest I found.  Many were in the $60-100 range.

The 410 listing - 1980 solid silver helmet... Sold yesterday (4/20/14)

Is it hipsters with their parents credit cards? Who pays that much for a used helmet? :headscratch:

Maybe I shouldn't have pitched my Moto 3....
