    I have just bought a pair of carbon Ducati Juliets (the non-serialised generation).

    However, the 'carbon' effect on one side of the frame seems to have been rubbed off, showing the silver coloured metal underneath. :sad:

    Is this a known problem with these glasses?

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Unless you want to get it powder coated or painted. Obviously the finish won't be the same.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    I have just spoken to the seller and they have agreed that I can return them for a full refund.

    It's such a shame as they are beautiful glasses!

    I'm a little confused. Are there multiple series of Ducati Juliets?

    initially the x-metal and carbon frame released about the same time in 1999. then another carbon frame with hydrophobic in 2009.

    Ok, I stopped collecting a few years ago when I went back to school, so I'm not up on all the new stuff. I used to know it all by heart when I worked for them.
