    Hey guys,

    I am tired of waiting for a good set of original BI lenses for my R1 to pop up so I am going to get a set of lenses from the good Doc.

    He has a set of VR28 polarized lenses already cut and ready to go, does anyone have pics of an X-Metal R1 with these lenses? I want to see what they look like in the frame.

    Thanks!

    I know this isnt exactly what youre looking for but it is VR28 BIP in an X-metal finish Juliet.

    Thank you sir for posting that. It does give me an idea of the look.

    Anyone else have one of the R1 with VR28?

    Mines in the post. Will get them in to a R1 Xmetal frame and take some pics if you can wait.

    Here they are...

    Yes from the same, has the relieving cuts to prevent spider cracks. Happy with mine. Shown with a Xmetal Juliet for comparison
