  2. Looks like typical 70s-80s dirt track stuff. Mine says OC-80
    You can get the whole rear ends for as low as $100-400 bucks

    I have a few of those hanging on the wall. They are not super hard to find, nor terribly expensive, but they are cool lookin'. A cover like yours in good shape with good bearings would fetch maybe 40-80 bucks on ebay.

    I agree on the wall hanger thing espessially if you knew the old fella. If it hangs on your wall, it might give you cause to smile when you look at it and remember the guy and the cool history that old part has seen.

    Good luck, -Abone.
