Just managed to acquire one, is it considered retro??

I just snagged a near perfect Shimano 600 groupset too, is that period correct?

Cheers

Mark

Yes, the bike is retro, the groupset may be period correct - 600 went through a few changes over the years.

Cool, thanks guys... UPS says it'll be here at 4pm my time!!!

I am going to build it up tonight, I just looked at the Groupset I just bought and it has a Syncros Stem, American Seatpost, Avocet Seat (Ti), The handlebars are in great condition... I think all I will need is a rear brake cable... SCORE!!!

I hope the Klein is a 27.2 :wink:

Any ideas on year?

That paint is from a few years later though isn't it? So you could use Ultegra STI too :D
