I was in two minds whether or not to post this one up as lets face it Klein's pop up quite regularly on RB. This one's a bit different as it's a repaint done by Martin at http://www.etoe.de/
I bought it of a guy in Portugal and after a tense wait it arrived a couple of weeks ago. Since then it's been sat in the house until a few days ago when I give it a bit of a dust off and adjustment. I've just taken a few shots in the sun and I thought some might appreciate so here it is... (I'll get some more soon).

It's a '92 Attitude and the standard of the respray is incredible; I've searched high and low and have failed to find any imperfections, the painter is obviously a very talented guy 8) http://youtu.be/BX0-SQMhkNQ

It came with a NOS mix of M730/735 and the only thing I've changed is the wheelset and grips. It just requires a period seatpost but other than that there really is nothing else to do with this bike other than admire the craftsmanship (can't ride it because 1. too scared, & 2. I'm massive ). :cry:

Thanks for looking 8)

Fantastic!!!!!!! It really seems good craftsmanship. As I am still searching for a good painter, can I ask what the paint job cost you?

Cheers!
