As with the Rainforest paintjob, this Mardi Gras is so damn ugly that it's becoming cool :wink:
Cool price already too. Shame that the stem/bar combo doesn't have the same paint. One could always send it to Jon though.

Good bad taste rather than bad bad taste perhaps? :wink:

Hasn't the Mardi Gras got a bit of a (dare I say it) holy grail appeal?

As far as ugly Klein paint jobs are concerned, I FAR prefer this very cool one:

The e-bay Klein reminds me of kids halloween puke.
They could have gone a little more Jackson Pollock and it would have been great.....like yo Natey's pic.

I'll take the ability to appreciate awful paint as another reason I am glad I don't have kids!

Another Klein turns up in the US.....

Not the best MardiGras Ive seen.
Again rare because not many people had the insanity to get one of these and not have one of the other great paint jobs Klein offered.

I like this one though......
