Been working on this for a short while, its my once 99/2000 Jamaican Gold Attitude Comp, now in the best colour Klein ever did - The Gator Fade, the time I saw one in a shop in the early 90's I've always remembered it! So it had to be done.

A big thanks to Jonrock for great spray job! :D 8)

Lovely build, my favourite paint for a Klein. Would it be cheeky to ask how much the respray and how it was done?


Cheers


Matt

Nice ... while I do like Jamaican Gold the Gator Fade is such a classic Klein colour and yours looks great. Fortunately the paint on my frame is mint so I don't have the dilemma of whether to repaint it another colour ... which if given the choice would probably be what you've done. Enjoy.

Thanks, some would say the paint was near perfect prior - but it had to be done! :D

looks great 8)

looks like you got the same problem as me with the flag, totally forgot front mech clamps are lower nowadays!

what do you reckon about the fred salmon, personally i think they have too much rise together with modern front suspension forks, hopefully goin to try something diferent with mine.
