    Hi fellas,

    I am an Australian Oakley enthusiast ,bought my first pair 12 yaers ago and started collecting x-metals about a year ago,now I cant stop.
    So I thought I may as well get in touch with some people with the same affliction.

    You are not going to believe this Max,but my first Oakley was a pair of XXs Plasma/Blue Iridium bought in 2000 which I still have only I have had to use Black replacement lenses in them, then last week I saw a pair of 24k XXs for sale on Ebay ,turned out after emailing back and forth that the frames were mint and - get this he had installed new Ice lenses in them a few years ago and not used them since ,so if everyone has been telling the truth, my beloved sunnies will be back to their former glory and I will have a nice clean pair of 24s with box and coin ect(I have a set of new 24k lenses I was going to put into the plasma frames but they woud'nt look too good so I did'nt).
    I am in Perth
