....but look carefully on pic number two (the MC2). It shows slightly worn decals that looks like stickers........shouldn't they be debossed? I have the exact same frame in Painted Desert and my decals are debossed on the MC2.

Maybe this is a repaint.....?....if so..it sure is well done!

S&S MC2 should have a decal, only PD has it painted/debossed, even my NS MC2 has a decal.

Thanks, that explains it. I wonder why Klein did that? I'm assuming that the decals on the top and downtube are debossed?

Anyway, that makes this frame a good buy, at least from my point of view. A minty S&S in L size is difficult enough to find and for that price you can do a whole lot worse I guess.

Yes all other lettering on a S&S is debossed, i'm guessing the reason a PD has the MC2 lettering painted is a gold decal would be hard to match colour wise with the other lettering and might look abit naff, where as white is easy to match.

20th Anniversary was also debossed, probably for the same reasons
