Cool, a '97 model with '97 Quantum Pro paintjob! Never seen one, I thought Klein stopped offering paintjob change possibilities (at least they don't advertise it in their catalog) in 1997.

Nice Fuselage! Was that one orange but repainted yellow by Klein at the factory?..It is amazing how many you find like this..for example this one..was pink, now purple..

thats the one. I did not know you could get your frame repainted by klien at the at the time. It all seems very strange to me.

thanks andy

its here at my delivery depot in coventry and i am pissed off. i phone parcel force to say you have it there and i will come and collect it due to the fact that they wont be able to get it to me till tuesday. but the jobs worth at parcel force who was standing right next to my frame said that it had to be booked in and that he aint got the staff to proccess it.

what the f**k is going on, he is telling me that my frame has travelled 4000 miles and on the last mile i cant collect and pay my customs charge. im the customer and if i am willing to intercept the parcel and pay the charge then why do they need to book it in. im going up before 12 so he can tell a 6 ft blackman to his face that he cant have his treasure.

thanks a very upset andy.
