a friend of mine has both the x metal and carbon variants with serial numbers. He got lucky and stumbled on to the x metal...Funny thing, he can't wear any of his collection except the 4 RX pairs he has HAHA
Truthfully, I don't know nearly as much about the X-Metals as some of you give me credit for. Sure, I own a few, but I'm more knowledgeable when it comes to "getting" them than I am when it comes the nitty gritty.
both the x metal and carbon variants with serial numbers
Okay, now I'm confused again: so the Carbon one did at one point have a serial? Presumable those produced before 2004?But when did the Ducati version change from X metal to Carbon?
The serials list on the OR lists only the X metal version (DUCATI######).
When the first Carbon ducati frames came out they did have a serial, it was just a frame color change. At some point after that all main stream juliets stopping having the serial numbers on the frames so there were no more serials on the ducati's either.
I have a carbon & and x-metal with a ducatiXXXX serial, to me it really makes them more desirable as a ducati piece because unlike other styles which have red icons and usually some inner frame insignia the only thing that made the juliet a ducati was the rubber and the lens one the serial was removed (meaning any carbon frame could be modded to be an exact ducati replica).
Thanks everyone for the info. I managed to buy a X metal Ducati Juliet with serial and will post pics once it arrives. It's thanks to you guys that I now know it's history. This site is simply irreplaceable!!!
