I purchased this bike suitcase new in 1995 and used it ONCE when I moved to Central Europe. Haven't used it since! It's been wrapped in protective sheets to keep it looking new. This thing was manufactured domestically before most comparable cases were 'offshored' and made using cheaper materials.

This Bike Travel Case is a durable, airline-approved hardshell case designed to deliver a road, cyclocross or mountain bike safely and securely through the air with the most aggressive baggage handling. Constructed from polyethylene for a durable impact resistant outer shell, this case is easily portable due to two integrated wheels for much easier transportation while walking.
The case splits easily into two PVE-padded compartments for frames or wheels, internal dividers to keep the wheels and frame separate, protecting the bike's finish while simultaneously providing additional storage for riding gear or accessories. Once loaded, use the four heavy-duty straps to keep everything packed up safe and sound.

• External dimensions: 48" x 10.5" x 28.5"

Here is a link to a comparable Thule case selling for $380
