    Apart from the red rubber and the etched lens, whats the difference between the Ducatis and the Carbon frames? In pictures they look the same, I cant find a real difference. Is there a different finish on the paint?

    No real difference except what you mention and the packaging.

    Ducati Juliets = X Metal finish
    Carbon Ducati Juliets = Carbon Finish

    Don't quote me on this, but i believe the X Metal finish Ducati Juliets were also serialized.

    You missed this one: http://www.o-review.com/database_detail_colorway.php?ID=1295&table_name=glasses

    So it is X-Metal.

    Also found this thread discussing it: http://www.oakleyforum.com/threads/x-metal-ducati.12795/page-2

    Yes, most Ducatis were carbon, but there were also x-metal / BI Ducatis. SKU 12-636, produced in 2003/2004.

    Ok, so the paint finish is the same from what I understand from your comments, so I can basically take any Juliet carbon and change the rubbers for red ones and now I have a Juliet Ducati. I tough that maybe one was a shinier black than the other, but it seems like not. Thanks!

    Not exactly. It's true you can take any carbon frame and put red rubbers on it to make it LOOK like a Ducati (and there's nothing wrong with that. I do custom clones myself), BUT.... you'll also need the etched lenses to be a complete clone.
