In Search of the Easy Rider Sunglasses

The glasses worn by Peter Fonda, aka Captain America, in Easy Rider. If you've got the money, the Ray Ban Olympia 3119 are the way to go. As you can see in the picture they look pretty close to what Fonda was wearing. The only obvious difference is the shade of the lenses. Fonda's were nearly transparent, and I'm not sure if those lenses are still available. But the darker lenses look pretty damn cool.

The Olympia's retail for around US$130. But you will be able to find some for a better price on Ebay. Check here to see what's going on Ebay. But remember to get one with gold frames, if you're after an authentic replica from Easy Rider.

Now all you need is that Harley Davidson...
