    Hey guys I'm pretty much out of the Oakley game. I have someone interested in buying my extra OEM Romeo 1 lenses. These have been stored for years. The spider cracks pretty small on each side and each lens is in pretty much 9/10 condition. Can anyone help me price them please? Pictures are attached. Thanks!

    I paid $125 for mine without cracks.

    So were yours pretty much brand new and did they have the X METAL etching?

    I once paid $200 for a complete pair of R1. That does not mean the value of any R1 is $200.

    You won't see mint original R1 lenses for $125. It was a one time lucky find, and as such has nothing to do with the actual value of R1 lenses.

    I'd say yours (with very small cracks) are worth around $150, and had they been mint without cracks, they would fetch $250 or more.

    Thanks. After doing some research that makes a little more sense considering some OEM R1 lenses with even worse spider cracks fetch about $100 easily since you rarely see them out on the market.

    But be aware that while many try to sell mint R1 lenses for 250-300 they rarely sell at that price. Brand new OEM R1 lens prices have been trending around these ranges:

    Fire 225-275
    Gold 175-250
    Black 130-180 (200 at a stretch if BNIB)

    Just based on my own trading experience and observations.

    Good luck.

    Appreciate it. So would asking $125 for mine be a decent asking price?
