Rootbeer Fly
Wow ! - this is a great helmet in all respects. I have a 57.5 cm head and the fit is perfect, like it was made for my head shape. Sits low on the head like the new Bell custom 500 helmets I have.
The ear pockets have good room for my big ears, the D - ring is nicely finished and threads easily and the strap is long enough to work well, the liner is well made and comfortable. The finish is outstanding and the color is a nice medium brown and the trim around the edges is well fitted. I bought a Echo 3-snap visor ( 01-004 ) and installed it but I had to lengthen the outer snap slots 3/8 to slide the snaps in some to mate with the male snaps on the helmet which was no problem. * Visor install tip - place a small 3/8"x 1/16" o-ring over the inside of the visor snaps to keep them tight and prevent wind rattling if they are to loose in the visor slots.
This is a great helmet.

Love the styling.
The retro styling on this helmet is awesome. It is extremely light and the size was right on. I like the way it sits a little lower on my head than some other helmets. I also purchased the Bell Retro 500 3 snap face shield and it fit perfectly.

Great fit cool black metal flack
I was between the fly .38 and the bell 500.I pick the .38 cause it looks slightly smaller on my head.Also the other main reason was the removeable padding witch bell 500 does not offer.I love the black metal flake and it is very comfortable for a helmet.I plan on buying more styles of there helmets.

Retro Style with the Modern Design!
Awesome helmet. Great fit, classic 3/4 style. Biltwell has been my go-to brand for almost all my bike gear and accessories. Purchased the Bonanza last year was never completely stoked with the fit. Too round and sat too high on my head, even with trying different sizes.,The Fly .38 is the perfect fit for my narrow, tall head! Medium is nice and snug and sits way lower than the Bonanaza. After 3 weeks and 350 Miles later, highly recommend this 3/4 helmet!

Retro styling with modern features
It's a great bucket for the price, fit and finish is top notch. Make sure to measure your head properly and buy the correct size, mine fits great. I chose the fly 38 over the bell 500 and biltwell bonanza because it has a lower profile shell while still meeting DOT regulations.

I would buy it again.
It doesn't fit super great, but it's ok comfortable. Looks awesome, and totally goes with my 82 Yamaha bobber. The look overcomes the noise and lack of features. Light and cool (as in not warm), but it's also cool (cool cool) looking. I received complements the first day I used it. That's what I wanted. Cool helmet, ok function.

All in all a great looking, comfy helmet!
I had a Biltwell Gringo but decided to purchase an open face helmet because I was getting cheek acne (even after wiping the insides with rubbing alcohol in attempts to sterilize it.)

I saw comparisons of the Bonanza to this .38 and went with this one purely on the fact that the .38 seemed to look a little slimmer and lower profile than the Bonanza, and still of course had the DOT rating. Yes, I am vain, and dread the goofy mushroom head look! I also dug the root beer flake color, something that the Bonanza line didn't have :)

I bought a small hoping that the sizing would be the same as my Gringo, which was true! Super comfortable and slides on nicely, even with a bubble shield on.

I love the leather lining (okay, it's probably pleather but whatever) on the outside of the inner cheek pads, gives it a more sophisticated look. Also like the stitching on the inside and on the plastic lining that goes around the opening. Subtle touches that really make it stand out from the bare bone basics on the Bonanza, I think.

I am able to use my Biltwell bubble shield on it like I previously mentioned, though the fit is clearly not perfect. BUT - still looks great and there's no rattle at speeds of up to 40 mph. Haven't gone highway speeds with it yet, but I'll probably stick with my Gringo shield for those rides anyways.

Great retro style helmet.
I just received this helmet and I'm pleasantly surprised. The fit was spot on, if somewhat larger than I anticipated. The helmet fits as low, if not lower, than other retro style 3/5 lids. The noise level is substantially higher than my Torc T-50, but that is to be expected as it is a full-face helmet. It's slightly louder than my Lazer DeVille, which was retired by this helmet. Overall, it looks great with my brown on brown '75 Honda 500T.

Awesome root beer colour
I chose the root beer metal flake and it's way better looking in person than the photos. I'm normally a size xl and this is spot on. It's much browner than showin in the picture. Only downside is the mushroom head effect but I do have a very large round head that may attribute to that. I would definitely recommend this if u want an alternative to the other big names and be different :)

Hey guys, wife is looking at getting the lid, curious about it taking bubbles and shields, anybody know if it has the same stud pattern as the biltwell bonanza of the same style?
Kristopher N on Aug 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I put a yellow Biltwell bubble shield on mine. Got it here, too. Works good. A little rattly at 70 mph, but not terrible.
Could some one tell me what is the weight of this helmet ?
