I don’t know much about helmets but I found these two old Bell xfm-1 helmets in my dad’s garage who just passed away. They are in mint condition, never worn too. The box isn’t in great shape though. I also have the tinted visors. Any idea how much it could worth? Is it legal to wear them or it’s just a collection piece? I’m pretty sure you can’t wear those where I live (Canada).
Thank you for your help guys, much appreciated!

An helmet that is over 5 years old shouldn't be used. Any (decent) manufacturer will have in their T&C's that any helmet should be replaced after 5 years.
Because they are biased I would gladly extend that to 10 years but I would be very weary for anything beyond that.
If you don't want to keep them maybe you can donate them to the motorbike museum or sell them to anyone wanting to collect them.
You just need to figure it out
Thanks for your reply

R1200GS twin cam - will miss you beaker.
That’s what I think, now the same guy is offering me $1300 CAD for both I might just wait a little and sell it to him if I don’t get any accurate answer of what they are worth.

Just make sure the money is in your bank before you send them off.
