Stripped the Klunk down to paint it properly last weekend, did intend to do a traditional style job in dark blue with cream darts but some last minute inspiration from a car forum led me to Camoflage, it's different that's for sure :lol:

Frame is pretty much done, just needs a good coat of laquer, going to paint the forks and bars to match, should have it built up and riding again next weekend.

Superb, should look good with the black rims and chunky tyres. Autumn woods camo - would have fitted right in down at Thrunton, though if I'd been riding it I would have lost it in the bushes.

You doing the stem and bars, or just the bars?

Eck, snow camo...mmmmm, nice!

Just painting the bars ZZ, stem is a fairly nice Tioga thing.

It's the 18" frame i have, size is deceptive, it's measured centre to top but the top tube has quite a curve so it's actually quite tall in the middle if that makes sence :? , also the standard frame has some chunky cable guides right on the top of the top tube which could be nasty in a spill, did'nt bother me as i ground them off but something to consider if running full gears and brakes, i'm 5'7" with a 30" leg and found the 18" fine though.

Noticed Bankrupt bikes are doing the frame for £30 now :)

Paint job reminds me of this. There's also a gray camo Klein (particularly rare) but I can't find a pic of it right now.
