A Klunn!!
This is a Klein Adroit of 1993 i think.

And now, without the horrible paint:

In singlespeed provisionally, it will be mounted with Onza pedals and brakes, Box levers, Cook Bros crankset, XT and XTR first generation and maybe old Bontrager wheels (CK hubs and ceramics rims).
I think i'll paint it in white but i'm not sure... if you've got ideas!

Why the hell was it in Sunn livery?

Nothing wrong with Sunn, but it is like putting Specialized stickers on my Pace!

Polish the frame and laquer it! Now that would look awesome!

A good buy for sure. That's not a Klein head set? IMO those cranks dont work.

I actually thought the paint job looked quite good, Not the decals mind just the paint. I think if it had been mine i'd of just ripped the decals off and either put klein ones on or left it naked 8)
