This was $5 at a local swap and I appreciated the almost space-age aesthetics. Anyone have an idea who made it?

Uh, don't know. Several companies experimented with elastomers and air bladders. Is it a collectible curiosity? Surely you wouldn't install that on a bike and expect anything good to happen..

By the look of the boot and the industrial look of the body casting, I'm going to hazard a guess that it's not a bike shock at all but, more likely, one for an ATV or something.
