    I can understand where you are coming from.
    But personally I donít like to see aged repo straps on original helmets.
    If I was you I would just enjoy them as they are and hope to pick up an original liner strap which of course wont be cheap.

    there is evidence of helmets being worn without chinstraps during their service life. put a net or cover on the helmet and put it on a shelf now you can just leave it there and not worry about the helmet sitting on the straps.
