Cool. I see my frame arrived ok.

Good to see them progress, seems you have a few Dolomites there.


Was your one the damaged one? What went on?


Yes, the last owner drilled it for V-brakes.

Had it welded so needs tidying up.

After adding the new colour I have to create the new attitude logo. The one on the frame differs to the original logos. The letters are bigger and shaped in a different way.

With the data I can make a stencil using the sign maker.

Using the stencil I spray on the Attitude logo. I use a thin colour BMW uses for interior paint of cars. It is a waterbased system you can add a harder. The result is a durable surface. I need it to get sharp edges between the masking tape and the sprayed colour.

The last step is a 2K clear coat application and some finish.

After all these steps the frame is ready to go back on the road ( maybe off-road )

Why extra taging repaints? Every Klein pro in Germany knows what an original and what a repaint is Florian :wink:
Or not?

Go along with it if you are not a german Klein pro. Or take some lessons from Frank. He can tell you everything what you need to know about german original Kleins.

I think the easiest way to show these from the originals is the fact they look almost perfect.

Florian your new Adroit nightstorm is a original and the finish around the decals is not perfect, hence the mass production and fast knockout of kleins BITD.

I think and noticed that the paint layers are thinner? So less paint is used so the result is neater ? You can feel that on the debossed logo's.
