This week, I replaced the top tube decals. I will not replace more, since I wanted to keep stuff as original as possible. Why? I dont know - I guess its more "lazyness" :-)

After replacement, I gave the top tub decals a good clear coating. Now it has this beautiful "KLEIN" or "Cannondale" touch if you put your finger over the letters. Although I know, that the KLEIN logos have been made differently of course. Feels awesome now!

With a ‘high spec’ Indian Fire Trail in my own collection, it’s nice to see a similar model getting similar treatment :D
