Lovely job Pete. Fantastic work by Jon on the paint, as usual.

Well done Pete, one of the Klien experts (me) approves!
The only let-down is that it's not an Adriot ;)

Love it! V. 8)

Can't help thinking though... You need some studio pics like the one on oldklein.com to show it off to it's potential?

V.cool though, extremely envious... 8)

Cheers,

I could always drill some holes in the dropouts?

Thanks for the words everyone. As always this bike was a collaboration of loads of people, all I did was bolt everything together in the right order!

I am not the biggest Klein fan (also no hater!), but executed that way shows great inspiration. Chapeau, came out very nice.

Love it, the blue housing kicks it right off-perfect, also love the no Shimano method of choosing parts, well done.

Shimano was the reason I got into retrobikes all those years ago, I hated the fact that while other companies built things right and slowly improved, Shimano threw everything away and started fresh every year. I couldn't keep up with it all so I vowed 'no Shimano'. To date only one of my retrobikes has any Shimano - my Bradbury, and that's because Doug Bradbury used a shimano hub body to make the 145mm rear hub. everything else is Campa, Suntour or Boutique stuff!

There is always one. At least one when it comes to Kleins! :)

In my opinion, the Attitude was the last of the 'proper' Kleins, it all started to go downhill after 1990.
