    i inherited this case when I bought a bike shop three years ago. I assume from where the logo used to be that this is an Oakley case. I can't find anything even similar to it on the forums here. Everything works, original glass, shelving, and lighting.

    Anyone know anything about it?

    Do you mean something similar to this one? The one I have would date back to the 1980's, possibly older. It's solid steel, has storage beneath, is a fluorescent tube light, and weighs a ton. The one in the picture here is much different to the one I have. This is what I find when I search oakley goggle case on the forum, ebay, craigslist, and such.

    Whatever glue that sticker was held on with is impressive. Looks like a lot of grinding or steel wool scrubbing, and still there.

    Could be not Oakley. I just recognized the shape of the logo on the front. The case was in a bike shop that was started around 1970, so could be anything. Does kind of look Oakley-ish with the rivets and everything. I'm thinking of painting it up and using it in my new shop. Just didn't really want to ruin a piece of history if that's what it was.

    Thanks.

    Maybe it is. The patina looks kinda cool tho. If it's steel it's probably not

    To quote the immortal Bill Murray..."Chicks in New York paying top dollar for this stuff"!

    I like it. Get a large ellipse logo on there and call it aged.
