If im being super anal, the weld in them matches the forks!!!!

The M900 XTR would be all wrong too (as well as the OnZa's) if we're nit picking. :wink:

1990-1991 Attitude

M900 didn't come out until 1992.

Those OnZa are...92-93ish I'd say.



Be that as it may, I did that Klein. Its the only one I'd really like to own, that year/color combo.

Mmm. I think the bike looks great.

It isnt totally period correct (umma gumma was the first thing I noticed) but its probbaly cos we are so USED to seeing so many green, pink and white Kleins that ARE period correct (Deore XT).

Not this year correct thing again!!

What's wrong with a bit of upgrading over time?

We all did it bitd!

As long as the ethos is in-keeping...!

90-91-92, come on kids it's a couple of years out!!

Looks great!

I'm with Boybuning on this one, BITD i'd keep a bike 2-3 years and stuff would wear out or something more "bling" would appear that i'd just have to have. So naturally it would be a mix of parts from a few years.
