    So, this is a part of the history I'm not up on....I've read that Oakley issued a recall on the 1 because of the lens cracking issue...and I've heard they offered other equivalent pieces to people who sent the 1 back. So is this in fact true and if so how much of an effect has this had on the supply of 1's available now?

    And as an aside, if anyone wants to sell me their X Metal R1 (ha ha ha ha) at a fair price, I'm in the market. Cash, cash and trade (Juliet I have for sale, Positive Red Straight Jacket II, all of the above).

    Based on the comments of others here on the forums, no more than $450. Two X Metal finishes have sold for under $400 in the past week, there's a plasma being offered to me right now for under $400. What comes with it and lens conditon has an effect of course but id just take a very good conditon frame as ling as it had its gaskets and nosepieces

    I don't believe there was any sort of formal recall. However, there was a period of time in which they would offer you any other xmetal in exchange for your R1 - due to the design issue/spider cracks.

    oogie is right. there was no recall. there were something like 150,000 of the x-metal - black colorway made. since they began running out of parts they offered discounts to customers that wanted replacement parts after they discontinued the romeo.

    yup no official recall afaik. but if you called them asking about a warranty claim on lens cracks they offered a 1for 1 with Xmetal XX and juliets. most went for the 24k XX as it was the most expensive at the time

    I feel like your pricing was pretty good! Just sayin I have seen people pat $600 and up for a pair but I guess they just have more cash than me and can pay that price!
