Bell Custom 500 Retro 3 Snap Shield
I bought this for my Biltwell lid but it was a bit too small. Through it on my Bell helmet though and it has been worth it. Doesn't get scratched up too bad and keeps bees out of my face. Worth it!

Great Retro look on the Custom 500
Not much more to say than it looks and functions great on the Custom500 helmet. Adds a vintage touch to an already cool helmet

A shield by any other name...
I purchased a couple of these 3 snap shields for my wife and I. Since we bought Biltwell Bonanza helmets that don't have shields (but do have snaps on the helmet) purchasing these shields was a no-brainer, and honestly it was really the only option unless we wanted bubble shields.
The fit is great, the vision is clear, and they even adjust a little bit once they are snapped onto the helmet so you can pull the shield down a little more to cover more of your face if you'd like. Until I realized that, I thought the shield was a little on the short side and allowed too much air under it and in into my eyes...not anymore though!
I bought clear shields instead of going for the gradient tints or dark tint versions. I don't want to ride without a line of defense between rocks and my face, so I figured clear was the best all around choice. The dark tint would be nice, but I would imagine riding at night wouldn't work so well just as you wouldn't wear sunglasses at night...I'm looking at you Corey Hart!

Great shield with style for miles.
If you want to complete your vintage or cafe racer look, then you need this shield.

Completes the helmet
I purchased the clear and the smoke shields for my 500 flat black helmet. They look great, offer better protection, and still allow good air flow.

DOES NOT WORK WELL WITH BILTWELL GRINGO
Sure, you can force it to snap but there are gaps on the side. Doesn't work. Sent it back. The bubble shield from Biltwell and Bell both work on the Gringo.

Well made shield!
Bought this shield to fit on my Biltwell Gringo helmet. I have a medium helmet and it snapped on with no problems. Fits nicely and also allows slight ventilation by lifting up on the front edge.
