    I have a 3/4 helmet like that which I sometimes use, it's a cheap but well made Vega "Vista XPV", they go for about $75 on ebay.

    Shoei also makes an equivalent model, much more $ and probably worth it.

    I really like the extra vision provided by this type of helmet, but I feel it is risky to the face so I use a full-face about 95% of the time. I wear the 3/4 helmet only on very hot days, and am always shocked by the better vision and sensation of speed it provides.

    Practically everybody and their brothers make a 3/4" helmet like that. So you have plenty of choices.

    look at Davida. they are a classic euro helmet and made in uk. what I would get if I were willing to give up the extra protection of a full face helmet.

    I also think this one is kind of cool....Draxtar . i would never wear it but it would look cool on someone else.
