    Just purchased a pair of the original M fames with sweep lenses. The frames have OAKLEY on the ear pieces so I assume they are generation 1. What all lenses will fit them? Does anyone produce new lenses for them or do I have to search for the original gen 1 lenses? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Yes, that is a Gen1. Only the old lenses will fit them. There's a chance, with manufacturing tolerances, that a new lens would work, but that's more of a crapshoot. New lenses can likely be modified to work, as the old lenses had smaller hooks than current. And the old frames are so brittle if you're putting stress on them their longevity will be nowhere near what the current plastic is capable of.
