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


I could always drill some holes in the dropouts?



I wouldn't go into that. 'Tude is just fine.
I was only playing the 'how to spell Klein incorrectly' game a bit further (Adriot, see :P )

Top draw work as ever Pete. Loving the graffiti, inspired choice. Wonder how many were done in that scheme? Only ever seen the one pictured.

There was another on MTBR, all different, all unique!

John, thanks! This was a real fun one to build and is meant as a fun bike for me to ride! This one will get dirty eventually and the random paint will be great at hiding the scars!

Great job, really does look stunning, reminds of of the early 90's Klien "wow" factor :)
