Im not sure if I agree with you there mate - of all the bikes I've ever owned and remember the boutique stuff Ive had pass through my hands (and also mass production stuff) the Kleins have by far had the best quality paintjobs I've ever seen.
The precision of the linear fades is outstanding - and to get them near identical (Ive had two moon rises next to each other) is pretty impressive. Ive had a Rascal gator linear fade, a sunburst linear fade, a Trekish Koi colours scheme (orange and gold fade) and as mentioned - two moon rises fades.
The stencilled decals - sprayed black or white to begin with and then painted over so you get an embossed effect - look absolutely fantastic and the paints durability is superb.
The only think I can say that is usually a pig with Kleins paint (especially early 90s ones) is that the fluo colours faded over time when exposed to years of sunlight
- probably more due to the type of paint used at the time.
