    Guys,

    I am a proud owner of a pair of Romeo 1s (serial 000024). I love these and would never give them up, but I need new lenses for them be it cut or a replacement. I dont want aftermarket lenses. Just Oakley.

    The original lenses have the stress fractures in them and I thought it was time to do something about this. I have scoured the forums and have sent off a couple of PMs to some folks.

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Dobostorta

    Nice low serial...

    I'd get ahold of Dr. Chop and have him cut you some lenses... Finding original lenses is gonna be tough.

    Edit: What color lenses are you looking for? There are some Fire Irids on eBay right now... #221030708315

    Yeah the serial number is low as I bought them from Oakley when they first came out. For lense color, I am open to anything really. I did send DR Chop a PM.

    I'm sure someone thought they were buying the whole thing.

    Maybe. That said, I bought 5 different lenses from Oakley for my X Squared. Too many years went by before I started to look into replacement Romeo 1 lenses from Oakley. Now I am somewhat sol :sad:

    I was thinking the same thing, that kind of money for lenses with scratches and fractures is effing retarded... People are getting out of hand with this R1 stuff anymore...

    I bought Rubyskulls last brand new frame. Probably gonna get VL lenses unless i can find some originals cheep. The prices are absurd honestly.
