|Nice job! Amazing how many "hardcore" riders there are who get stumped on this one.
They started out making grips for moto/bmx (and they were the most innovative grip manufacturer, too). Their first forray into sunglasses were the Factory Pilots, a goggle style lens shape with ear pieces and a foam strip above the brow to catch sweat (very 80's). They then came out with the Wayfarer styled Frogskins.
