Could be a helluva catch. Although word is there is already quite a bit of interest.

Only interested in shipping to you if you buy my Kooka levers :P

Strange.

This is definately no Adroit frame - the main tube is way to slim. Probably a 90-92 Attitude frame and someone has drilled holes into the dropouts - dangerous! I sincerly doubt that this drilling was done for a team rider. Therefore, it is also unlikely that the paint is original.

The holes in the dropouts are used to lock the bike when going to the store or getting some coffee.

Definitely not original paint, dropouts will break at first ride, crappy thin down tube, no rigid fork, everyone calm down and stop looking.

I have heard a "custom paint jobs" made for Klein-employees... this could be one. Holes are seen also before...

The seatpost is cracked and there's also a weld right on the top tube behind the head tube so I would stay away.

Nice, I figured you would have the info on it. Too bad the condition is so poor.

Sorry, cell phone pics.:(
Hard to see in the one photo of the Damage but it is a weld. Not sure how it cracked as the headtube had no front end damage.
Very low serial number?
White Fish painted on the MC1?
Paint is original as far as I could tell. Pretty dang cool! too bad about the damage.
Photo of seat tube came out poor.
