What helmet are you wearing?
Im looking for a helmet to match my new 14 CB, in true retro fashion. Back in the day, think 82 900F, I had a matching Arthur Fulmer Helmet.
Just curious whats out there that may be cool

Bell Riot Helmet

All the comfort of the Bell 500 Custom with a flip down visor.

Bell really has some cool paint jobs. I just can't wear an open face helmet. Ever see that impact chart? Chin areas specifically. Some company even painted it on the helmet as a design.

I also just learned from a member in a post somewhere on here about the lid picker website- which not only helped me find the best helmet fit for my head but also I read a report linked somewhere on here that mentioned a bright helmet is the best thing you can do for visibility.

So, as much as I like a cool looking bike, I now own and wear a dorky bright yellow helmet.

Biltwell or Bell are probably your best bets. There is a "Helmet" thread (called "Show your lid") in the "Gear" section, too, that may give you some ideas.

Hedon and Davida make some of the finest vintage helmets you can find. Both made in UK and both have distributors in the US. Pricey, but very high quality helmets.

I have no choice but to buy an Arai. My head is oddly shaped apparently.
