I purchased my first pair of Oakley during the summer of 96 in Taiwan. Burnt / Black iridium E wires they were and from that time on, I only trust Oakley to protect me from thermonuclear radiation. They have never failed me since. It's been more than 10 years now and my collection just keeps growing.

You are lucky to even be able to purchase a set. I have been on a wait list forever.

I see. So I guess you could say there are 2 "generations" of these bezels. Interesting info, Chris. Thanks

That's what I thought. I do prefer the "Fuller" look on both yours and pastor's bezel over the skimped out ones.

These diamond bezels come with a white outer sleeve as well where the sku and barcode is adhered right?

Thanks for those close ups. The other ones were from a member of the other forum.

They are so rare it's hard to get a side by side comparison pictured together. So do you think it is a QC issue or different generations which I highly doubt given it's short lifespan

Is it just me or I have noticed some inconsistencies in these bezels?

But comparing the example that our very own Pastor.Elfstrom has versus another member of the other forum, I've noticed that the diamond cuts vary from bezel to bezel.

Pastor's:


The other one:



As you can see, Pastor's bezel has diamonds cut to a more squarish shape and this filling the gaps nicely. The other one has a more round cut and gives it a feel like Oakley is skimping on the diamonds. Perhaps this is the reason why these bezels got discontinued so quick.

What do you guys think?

I wonder if these bootleggers may have access to authentic hardware like the D rings and tags.

Finally found a TDF Radar Pace "unique" pattern lens. It's pretty trippy.

This I believe is the biggest set (in terms of the number of pieces) Lego ever made.

Thanks for that info, T. I'm trying with the idea of restoring this back to it's almost original glory since the scuffs and scratches cannot he buffed out. I think originally this was auctioned off with a pair of black on black B1b. I read somewhere that only 200 of them were made so finding a pair to mount on the handles will be a challenge.

My search for a Bike Badge led me to a quaint bicycle store in Sacramento, CA where this rather unique bike was being parted out. Did a few searches and somehow this may be the one that was on the display window of the San Francisco Flagship O Store on Market Street that was auctioned off to benefit Tyler Blick (the then 5 year old son of Steve Blick from Oakley's Sports Marketing)
Circa Spring of 2011
Was anyone following this auction and could provide further details?
