Thanks for your insight! What do you mean by factory repaint? Im intrigued now !!! Im not entirely sure which year model it is ! It has the MC1 setup on it and the bronze looking badge on the front which I think means its a Foreign model !! German, Belgian etc... !!!
If you got more info on it please let me know !!!
I dont mind the colour ! I have to say when I first looked in the 1994 Klein catalogue 13 years ago, I fell in love with the coral Reef paint on the Quantum Pro ! Perhaps it hasn't just aged well !!! It will never look as glorious as my Moonrise Attitude..... But hey ho ! She's gone now and im not going to cry!
All the best
The metal badge on the head tube was only available in German Kleins at the request of the German importer Storck (yup, the same guy makes nice frames too) to differentiate the grey-import ones from the "legally imported".
Your frame looks like it is a 1992 model since it has unicrown fork but still the smaller diameter downtube and I guess 27.2mm seatpost ? The 1991 model had fork with welded crown whereas the 1993 model had 31.6mm seatpost and 1 7/8" downtube.
Check out if the serial # is under the BB shell That code should tell you the manufacturing date (but not always, 'cause the codes differ).
As you might know, Klein offered a service where you could get your frameset repainted with the current colors. The Coral Reef was not available until 1994 model year. There is a slight possibility that your frame would have been a left-over 1992 that was painted in late 1993 when the Coral Reef was available.
I myself have a 1993 Sea & Sky Attitude which has been originally painted Sea & Sky even if the colour came available in 1994.
Also the stickers of mine and also your Attitude are 1994 models.
Yeah, the catalogue Quantum Pro in Coral Reef looks much nicer in the photos! But hey, tastes are different and however I may like it or not, Coral Reef is always better than any of the solid colors.
Too bad for that Moonrise Atittude, I really love Moonrise...
