Moto Buco Open-Face Helmet is back.
And it's as hot (and as cool) as it was in the 1960s.
But now it's more comfortable -- and more protective than ever.
Re-engineered and re-created by Toys McCoy Products to meet Japan's
strict safety requirements, the new Moto Buco was until recently
available only in Japan.
Now Collezione-Giappone S.P.A. has become the exclusive dealer of this retro classic for distribution worldwide at an affordable price.
The Moto Buco's slim design -- patterned after jet fighter pilot headgear -- still carries the aura of speed and thrills that it did in the American racing scene of the 1960s and 70s. Those helmets disappeared with the creation of stiffer safety requirements, and full-face helmets became the norm. You can still find vintage Buco helmets in their original box for sale in the marketplace. But old age brings degradation and weakening of the shell, strap, and liner. So those old helmets are unsuitable for use on the road. The Moto Bucos, however, are all-new and made with modern materials throughout. They are unbelievably accurate reproductions. Toys McCoy started from scratch, working with drawings and original helmets to create a high-quality reproduction of this racing classic. The high-strength Styrofoam liner, the super-strong strap, the form of the shell, the width of the trim rubber -- all were faithfully reproduced and created by Toys McCoy Products. No off-the-shelf parts were used, and no compromises were allowed. Every curve of the original helmet was measured and duplicated. Special paint was used to re-create the appearance of the original. And many prototypes were made and tested before finding a liner design that gives such a high degree of comfort. The Moto Buco helmet has passed Japan's stringent SG Standard for use on big bikes (125 cc and up) on the nation's public roads and highways. But please note: It does not have US DOT Standard approval, nor approval in other countries. So check your local regulations before riding with this helmet. In any case whether you wear this retro repro on your ride, or simply showcase it, the Moto Buco will take you right back to those good ol' days.
