Race Worn Helmets
Bob Hannah's Original 1977 "Lightning Bolt" Helmet
On August 21 1977 at the AMA 500cc National in Atlanta Georgia, Bob "Hurricane" Hannah raced with Lightning bolts on his helmet for the first time. The original helmet used that day was recently discovered by Bob who had given it to an 11 year old boy named Phillip Torricellas. Phillip never wore the helmet and kept it in its original condition all these years. Everything is exactly as it was including the duct tape under the visor and the first ever lightning bolts that Bob put on the helmet back in 1977.
