Also commonly known as "Expandable Metal Cap Straps" or "Metal Expansion Straps," these cap accessories make any vintage or reproduction motorcycle cap look good.  Prices range from $7.99 - $8.50, so don't let the shininess of these straps drive the price of that vintage motorcycle cap auction up by multiples of two or more.

*This style of strap existed in the 1950's; however, original Buco metal cap straps had thicker metal expansion links that appeared braided.

I am in no way affiliated with the above companies; just showing options.  There are more out there, but these two are the least expensive and I've actually purchased from one of them years ago.

If the braided rope is missing from your cap and metal isn't your style, then you can stop by your local craft shop and choose from a cornucopia of colors (to include two-tone), styles and lengths for just a few bucks.
