Does anyone have an idea where I can find an adapter kit to allow me to use a modern Shimano XT crank set on a restored Klein 1994 Pinnacle pressed-in bottom bracket?

I can purchase a bottom bracket kit from Ash, but I need to adapt the system to allow for a modern 10-speed Shimano XT crank set.

Hi Keith,
Basically it´s your business what kind of parts you put onto your bike, but onto a Klein with pressed-in bottom bracket only a square-tapered crankset can look really good...
A Hollowtech 2 crankset on a vintage Klein is not too attractive imo...
Cheers and happy building ;)
