1970’s Duke Cook USAC Silver Crown Race Used Helmet
Great vintage Bell helmet race used by USAC Silver Crown stalwart Duke Cook. The helmet was used around the late 1970s. Cook’s racing career started in the mid 60’s and spanned over twenty years till he retired from racing in the late 80’s.
This well used hand painted Bell is divided up in three colors, red on the right side , blue on the left and white the down the middle (there are yellow pinstripes on the edges of the white band). There is eroded (due to race wear) ‘Super Cook’ lettering to both sides of the helmet and the remains of a star design on the left side. There are Bell and Valvoline stickers on the top front and chin respectively.
This helmet was a part of the Ron Burton Collection
