Have had this frame for a while and been planning this build for well over a year, wanted to do something diferent with it, wanted old skool looks with new technology.

Shaved off the brake mounts and got some Fox Forx, also not pictured is a Fred Salmon 1 piece bar/stem to try and give it the MC1 look, here are the pics before the respray.

Funk me, thats stunning 8)

Great idea using the Fred Salmon one piece, the colour matched Fox forks are ace too.

Bright paint, colour matched bar/stem combo and colour matched forks are what makes a Klein a Klein IMO :wink:

It's a great take on what is IMO one of the iconic bikes of the 90s. Look forward to seeing this one finished :D
