I wanted the one with the US flag but my dad bought me the Caramel color one (sans the stripes) as it was the cheapest

I had a white one with blue stripe when I was a kid, set off perfectly by my giant yellow bubble visor!

That's different. I wish they had a full face helmet with two retractable visors in it, clear & tinted.

Nice retros. I was lucky to have the glitter special from K-Mart. I still remember the weather striping material around the edge having to be re-glued every other week! Awww ... good memories!
