I thought you did very well indeed John, you just need to keep at it now so get yourself out on a Sunday with Ben and me :wink:

I had a look for that Klein last night and I reckon it has to be pre 89. The 1989 had a U brak but I can't find one with your colour scheme.

All here, but the Klein fans might know more about it even though it's not the high end ones.

I had a nosey on google last night, and from what i found i would guess it to be a 1990, the 1991 has canti's and the same decals, the 90 has the U-brake, ill have a sniff at the link Ben put up in a few mins, definately want to get back out in the saddle, as much as i suffered yesterday i really enjoyed it, need to strip my bb down though as it was making some terminal sounding noises late on into the ride :roll:

It must be '89 with the u-brake I think. Is not the sovereign blue colour scheme that was the second option is it? So more likely a later repaint? Haha, I can't remember now whether it was a metallic colour or also had a fade.

I don't know why I'm trying to help, I know nothing about Kleins.
