Nosepiece and ear socks kits pffffouah... I have neon yellow, neon green and neon pink but... I still miss too many. I have never seen a red one selling anywhere. Anyway.

Yeah, to have all the frame color ways that ever were available on the market is also my affordable goal.

Good luck to us!

I know only one collector in south of France who has got a blue iridium strip.

I have kinda given up on that one. I only a really good state grey strip and am happy like that.

Still on the chase for a carbon and black rain frame and I will feel like my Mumbo/M Frame quest is over. Well maybe.

PS : I would love a heater fire iridium, a +red sweep... an M Frame box which I still dont have as amazing as that seems to me... what else! A red nosepiece/earstem kit, a transparent one too... Oh dear, its not over!!!

Thanks Dann for the precise detail. I didn't remember about the USA/Europe difference for the boxes.

Just thinking about it now. Have we ever seen a Mumbo lens box?

Waouah! Really nice! A french collector? Who can that be? I never saw these pics on O-Review but I have an idea maybe where they can come from though.

I actually was wondering if the "strip" lens was already available at Mumbo time, in grey or iridium, but feather in grey I imagined.

This picture seems to prove that yes. But, still, no sticker apparently on the strip box. And a M Frame era nosepiece.

Btw, on the last picture I posted, you were supposed to recognize... Lance Armstrong, in the late 80's when he was a triathlete and sporting a nice pair of iridium Razor Blades.

Today, a duathlete, Ken Souza, at the Zofingen Duathlon in 1993.

Why does it say "Razor blades"on the micro bag! These aren't Razor Blades?!

Well its 00h05 here in Paris! Time for the picture of the... day or nite?

Found that one, quite rare too to see Splatters in such situation! Hawaï Ironman 1991 I think.

Well it seems Allen probably had a good contact with Oakley to have a pair of these. He was just wearing these off race of course (sporting a pair of classic sea foam blue mix of blade/razor blade that year). Also he had that "custom" M Frame lens I put a picture of in the Mumbo/M Frame discussion.

Ok that makes sense then.

Yeah it seems indeed that the frame is covered by something like snakeskin. The ear stems aren't though.

Sorry for the poor quality but I found it nice to see Mark Allen wearing these back in 1989!

Ah! Great! Never saw a "strip" sticker on any box before!!! Super!!! Even wondered if that ever existed!

@James : your Gen 1 collection is really nice! Indeed. I got a Fingerprint one recently and "only" seem to miss a carbon print and blackrain!

By the way, I am coming back with that again.

I really wonder what is that lens shape Mark Allen was wearing in the Hawai Ironman 1993. It seems to be a non-commercialized M Frame lens shape that is a mix between a sweep/heater and Strike maybe!

Would love to find infos on that!

Waouah, never saw such a green shade on a +red iridium lens even though I know it can tend to green sometimes! Really quite strong here.

Also to add a bit to the previous classification of Mumbo/M Frames, I confirm gold mine 1st gen existed. Rare to find but I've got one. I didnt know cobalt existed too! Any pictures?

Thanks for all the nice comments! Next step is, if the opportunity comes, to get a simple tower or something like that...
