Brass framed goggles made with an inclusive angle of 135 degree offering a wider range of vision than the single pane flat or convex lens were first introduced by the Royal Air Force in the late nineteen twenties. In addition they were stronger and much more durable than the Perspex type lens which could fracture when struck by an object or during a collision. Made from laminated glass the lenses also offered a UV protection benefit and later became available with a tinted laminate , ideal for night time use. Many open top motor car drivers , motor cyclists and of course RAF fliers adopted these preferred eye protectors.

Brass/Peso metal rings inspired by vintage Mexican souvenir rings from the 1940s-1960s.
Souvenir rings were originally made in Mexico after the Mexican Civil War, and were often cast from melted down coins because the peso had become extremely devalued. They gained popularity with American motorcycle enthusiasts in the 1940s, who would buy the big, tough, affordable rings on their trips to Mexican border towns. Eventually the rings became highly collectible and emblematic of American biker culture.
