Englishman Len Terry looks on while Dan Gurney tries out a mock-up cockpit of what would become his F1 Eagle. He went on to win the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix. It thus became the first and only car produced in America to win a Formula 1 race in the modern era. From DAN GURNEY’S EAGLE RACING CARS, by John Zimmerman. (AAR Archives)

Bell Bullitt Helmet - Solid Black. The Bell Bullitt is the brand new full face retro helmet from Bell. Inspired by Bell's first full face helmet, the classic Bell Star helmet, it has that great retro look but with all the modern touches you would expect from a manufacturer like Bell. The detailing on the Bullitt helmet is superb, from the meshed air intakes to the luxurious leather inner.
