Hi All

Could anyone help with a Klein frame I have ?
I read somewhere that 'L' stood for rascal in the Serial number can anyone confirm this. Stickers on frame are not the original stickers but this is how I bought the frame
Serial number : Klein 20L08943..

Pictures of frame are here

Thanks

I also had a '94 Fervor(20L1094....) with the 'L' in the serial number as well. IIRC, they're the same frame, they just had different color options.

Definitely a Rascal/Fervor. Cherish it.

@Ishaw
Which clues...the frame colourr or other things?
So would you say it is a Fervor? Is there any difference between a Fervor and a Rascal except the colour?
Cheers

I was drawn towards the rascal decals to be honest. It certainly looks like a rascal when compared to the one I have. I'm no Klein expert though but I've seen other grey rascals. I don't know anything about the fervor I'm afraid.

Rascal and Fervor were the same frame with the same geometry.
The only difference is difficult to be seen : It's the paint job. The rascal, as the other Klein was painted with "multiple coat of Durethane", a very high and strong quality paint. The Fervor got a classic paint job, for a very lower cost.

It's a Rascal...

It has the press fit BB, the Fervor came out later and only had the threaded BB, the only UK ones I saw were always a Metallic green
