Vintage Helmet

This vintage leather helmet came up in my local FaceBook feed today. I'm kinda interested. I know, I know, not DOT approved and all that. But maybe just for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride or something.

Anyone have any idea of what era it's from, that a fair price?

And a leash? It looks like something for the Harley crowd.

I'd guess if the original fecebook poster were to check dads basement he might find other interesting items. Maybe handcuffs, leather whips, etc.

I think it's a liner for this old style helmet. Need to check out some Ace Cafe pics to see of it's from that era.

Is it a Rocker thing, or Mod?

Lexol pH Balanced Leather Cleaner might get the blotchy stains out but I still wouldn't wear it.
