Here’s the full press release:

Oakley’s one of a kind solid 18K gold M Frame with certificate of authenticity signed by Lance Armstrong will be auctioned off July 19th-29th, coinciding with the final ten days of the 2007 Tour de France.

Hand crafted in jewelery quality 18K solid gold by prestigious jeweler Michael Dickey, this rendering features gold iridium tint lenses signed by Lance Armstrong and is one of only two in existence. The unique sculpture replicates the frame design worn by Armstrong in seven Tour de France championship victories.

As the group makes their final sprint down the Champs-Elysees on Sunday, July 29th, the auction will close at 17:26 CEST (5:26pm Paris time).

All proceeds will go directly to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

“For nearly 20 years, Oakley has been there for me, on and off the bike,” says Armstrong. “Now, together with the company’s support and those who appreciate the performance of its eyewear technologies, we can help make a difference to millions of those who are living with cancer.”
