For some strange reason, I like it!, I think because of the contrast, the black highlights the vibrant colours far more than normal, dare you to keep it that way, all original Klein paint don't forget!

DIY way is screw a crank bolt into the spindle and knock through with a hammer, hopefully the bearing & spindle drop out, i did it earlier on this frame.

To install, a little bit more harder.......
