its nice to see one dirty, but it's lacking some bright pink paint.

hi
i ride everything i own. after all it's only a bike. :lol:
guy i picked it up from bought it from a friend when it was only a couple years old. but couldn't see himself riding a pink bike. :roll: so he painted over it with the grey. he couldn't remember, thinks he stripped the rear but it was so much work he just sprayed over the original paint on the fork. one day i might try and see if i can get the grey off the fork.
sad he did this. but probably the only way i would have got one at the price i did. no complaints here.
roy

had a bit of spare time so i installed the gear cables, gear/brake levers, grips & saddle.
this bike will not be using period correct stuff. just things which i have in the shed. i just want to get out and ride this bike. hopefully the brakes will arrive very soon. i also have a set of smoke & darts coming soon.
i still keep looking at the frame. its like a dream come true.
i never thought i could top getting the rc100. but this has certainly come close.

I don't mean to be a pain Jeff, but M900 is really not correct for this build. M735 XT or XC-PRO is more appropriate for this year Klein. M900 didn't come out for another two years...

I think it is M732 isn't it? 1990-91? I could be wrong.

Yes, you are correct. M732 with the black brakes and hubs would be sweet on that bike...
