Hey guys as you know i sent my penny off for a tuneup late last month (26/09) through the local O-vault. they were shipped 27th, and arrived at the HQ on the 29th. NO NEWS SINCE THEN, but the lovely Repairs lady at Oakley Australia helped me track them, they are lost somewhere in HQ. that is still ongoing,.. i'll update as we go. But interesting thing - i was saying, those are pretty hard to replace nowadays, and she said yes, they are, and if they lost it they couldn't get me another pair obviously, as they were discontinued. But as you know, most HQ's carry spare parts, including frames etc for warranty and repairs. BUT AUSTRALIA DOES NOT HAVE A SINGLE PENNY FRAME AT HQ ANYMORE. Apparently a manager decided that because australia didn't bring in the penny in the first place (the orbitals were below legal limit for safety standards), and they at most had 4 sent in for repairs over the first few years that the penny was discontinued, that they didn't need any of the frames or lenses at HQ anymore. So, the manager proceeded to decommission EVERY FRAME AND LENS they had. Im talking ALL COLORS, including X-Metal, Copper etc. They are now GONE. Vanished. I just hope to christ some employee there had the sense to stash the crates full of decommissioned parts somewhere, and hopefully will pop up again someday. Somewhere in Melbourne, Victoria, there is a whole lot of Penny parts. I Hope. I couldnt believe my ears when i heard it. Well.. now im hoping they find my Penny's. and it doesnt end up vanished, like all those parts they had.
