IMHO, the museum worth Oakley products are as follows because they moved the market with breakaway inventions, materials and/or interesting designs.
The Oakley Grip (1st product)- 1975
The O/20 Goggle (turned into the O Frame)
The M Frame (world's most important sunglass)
The Eye Jacket (1st all CAD, full sculpture model)
We have made a lot of other things that are great, interesting and successful but these are my picks.
WOW! Am I glad I came across the Corteen/Gold jackets last weekend! I remember my EJ collection at the time..1st one I bought was the Cobalt +red, then Fuel/Gold, Green/Gold, Pearl/Black, & now Corteen...I too have my Timebomb, but man, I need these other Museum pieces...Especially since the importance has been made much more clear. Great info! Will be addidng a Tank once it is released.
the O/20 goggle was the very first goggle that i got from Pierre Karsmakers when i was riding MX bikes , it came in a red cardboard box , with a ( sorry for my english ) plastic see through piece , that came of the very first time you touched it . i had tons of these , what i liked about them was that the sweat absorber was a lot higher than the current models of goggles, to me it seems almost 1 centimeter , you could ride the deep sand-tracks forever , and never get any moist on the inside. Most popular color was yellow, a not the neon yellow , but the old RM SUZUKI yellow. ( i rode Honda's , but the red colour wasn't my personal favorite )
GRIPS - I HAVE
TIMEBOMB - I HAVE ( eddy jordan special # 34/100 )
EYEJACKET - I HAVE
( FOR FP ) OTT - I HAVE
SHOE ONE - I HAVE ( wish they came back )
M FRAME - mumbo splatter I HAVE
THUMP - I HAVE ( and addicted to them )
EYESHADE - I HAVE ( my first eyewear piece , thank you PK )
ROMEO - I HAVE ( 2 actually , couldn't decide on the colour )
( FOR FP ) leather MARS - I HAVE ( but just recently )
Personally , i think PLATE BELONGS IN THIS TOO , the production and engineering , and design are one-of-a-kind
Fred has a great collection and I do agree the the OTT belongs on the list. This goggle shown is NOT the O/20... it is a short production run of "The Oakley Goggle". I did not design it and consider it our biggest mistake. I got talked into doing it by the designer. As soon as it released, I got to work personally on the O/20 which was released one year later. Wish I could gring all these up.
