Hey I'm all about the customs but when it comes to destroying a classic frame like that..... that's not Mad Science....For this particular pair, I can’t really say it’s an abomination. I think it’s really what Oakley/Jim Jannard is all about. Pushing the limits of design through sometimes risky but maybe rewarding experimentation. Think Mad Scientist! Though execution may have been a little shoddy, but from the pictures, the seller may or may not have damaged the frame looking at the pictures. If they were really riveted on the frame, it would have shown on the insides of the ear stems assuming both sides were symmetrical.
Either ways, I commend this guy for taking the great risk (especially on the community’s behalf) to push Oakley’s designs further. So we know what we like/dislike or what can/cannot be done with this frame. This is not to say it’s not cringe worthy to watch someone drill into a perfectly good vintage frame for the sake of experimentation. But here I would like to thank him instead of condemning him for doing something I would never have done.
Haha, hope I don’t get stoned for this. I know what most people feel looking at that picture.
that's Bad Science....
