Bell Custom 500 Review

The Bell Custom 500’s classic appearance captures that era beautifully but offers many of the protective properties of the 21st century. Why have a retro or throwback lookalike when you can buy the real thing from the original company?

Whilst not the cheapest, the 500 provides great value with luxuries such as custom suede interior lining and a composite fibreglass construction. The external studs allow you to add different accessories such as visors and peaks.

Are they good enough? Motoring legends Steve McQueen and Mike Hailwood thought so.
