Hello!

Exceptionally I don't have anything to sell. In 1992 I've bought a new violett pinncale, which I used for several 10000 of miles. 5 years later I sold it and it took 15 years to get one back. OK, I haven't been looking for it all the time... :wink:

Shortly before i gave it away I mounted purple mavic 230 rims and it looked great. Therefore I collected many purple parts during the last weeks for this assembly. I'm just waiting for the shifters, but it's nearly ready for race...

In reality the colours look much more intensive, but in the meantime it has to stand in the kitchen. :roll: So, here are the pictures:

That is a really good looking Klein. I agree that black bar ends might look tighter....but overall, super sweet! Dig the Syncros finishing parts too.

More pics!

The now mounted bar is an old specialized bar but maybe I'm going to exchange it for a model with more bend.

The purple barends are from specialized too and the brakes are diacompe 987. Yesterday I laced the liner for the rear brake and finished just the brakes to go for a round at least with one gear... :wink:

Unfortunately my old camera is very insensible for the purple. The real colours can't be captured at the moment... :x

...and thank's for your very encouraging comments

Just finished my old/new project. Changed the brakes (the diacompe's squeaked terrible :x ) and mounted the stx-shifters. Now I can ride my beauty like almost 20 years ago.
