DIY Disco Helmet

By Andrea Michelle

Remember Pinky and Leather Tuscadero from Happy Days? Pinky was Fonzie’s ex and a travelling demolition derby driver, and Leather was her sister – a former juvenile delinquent and then lead singer of an all-girl group called “Leather Tuscadero and the Suedes”.

This is what their cousin, Disco Tuscadaro would’ve worn had she ever left Studio 54.

DIY Disco Ball Helmet instructions here.


Why not DIY your own helmet this weekend? If you’re not riding a bike of your own, how about bedazzling the kid’s Dora and Ben 10 bike helmets, and show them your disco moves?

And if you need a bit more Tuscadero-style inspiration, or simply have no idea what I’m banging on about, check this out: Suzie Quatro as Leather Tuscardero on Happy Days performing ‘Devil Gate Drive’.

Come Alive – YEAH!

    You are too funny Miss Fox!!  Love a little Suzi Q!  And just for your information you can buy your mirror ball supplies in the way of stick on sheets that you cut to size, peel of the back and place on said helmet from Spotlight!!!

    Hahaha this is awesome. First thing I saw this morning when I went to check emails. I so remember this episode and Suzi’s amazing incongruous 70s hair. I agree about the Italian at the end, nice touch hehe. I am so going to have to visit Spotlight! Thanks for the laugh!
