Roy Richter got his start in the auto industry in 1933 as a pattern maker at Bell Auto Parts in Bell, CA. Auto racing became a passion as did building race cars – his first put together from used parts in the Bell junkyard. His cars were successful winning championships and setting track records. Eventually, Richter bought Bell Auto Parts and put his passion into manufacturing safety products.
In 1954, Bell helmets found life out of a garage behind Bell Auto Parts with the manufacture of the first helmet called the “500.” Two years later, on higher than expected demand, the Bell Helmet Company emerged as a division of Bell Auto Parts.
Today, Bell helmets prides itself on enabling the world’s best to be their best. That best encompasses performance and safety as well as one of the most uniquely graphic lines of helmets out there that is both eye-catching and thought provoking.
