I think I'm getting ready to make the X-Metal plunge and have targeted an XX. I like tearing into something and fixing it up instead of buying pristine and worrying about making the first mark on it. I'm looking at a XX frame on eBay that is pretty stripped down. The temples and earsocks are present, but it looks like the orbital gaskets are gone, the nose bridge flex coupler is toast/missing, the nosebombs are gone, and the lenses "need replacing". Will buying this frame cheap and sending it to Oakley for new rubber be worth it? Does Oakley charge a flat rate and replace everything on the frame, so it would come back fresh and new in terms of hinges, gaskets, couplers, earsocks, nosebombs, besides the lenses (and Juliet noses)? What should I cap my bid at, $100, 125, 150? I'm not desperate, and I'm not a collector. I'm mainly trying to break into X-Metals with as little up-front investment as possible :laugh: Are factory XX lenses available, and if so do they sell for retail or over $100? $100 frame (let's say), $75 tune up, $75 lenses is 250 for a like-new XX, or am I wrong? Any way to fix the frame without an Oakley tune up? Thanks for helping me, I know very little about the world of X-Metals!
