7 pages and nearly a month and the furthest you have got is a saddle and a hub?

Unsigning from this thread as I doubt I will still be alive by the time it's finished :roll: :lol:

you guys are all so funny :lol::lol:
There are so many pictures of KLEIN Attitude with black xt parts and this will be one of those .. so what is merely interresting that you are so impatient! :?

..Have you sourced the NOS xt shifters or the mech.

I don't need to do that mate, the NOS xt 732 thumb shifters, rear & front mech and levers wait for years in my drawers on their use in a KLEIN bike,
the 730 crank with black chainrings is taken from my Marin and the black 730 Cantis would soon come across the pond.

I just miss the xt 730 or 731 pedals and the right wheels (black Araya or silver Mavic :?: :?: :?: )

MATE i like your style, everybody has sentiment, and you like to show yours by photographing your build.

theres nothing WRONG with Sentiment, as YOU know i am all for it...... :lol:

Also....

if you keep going you might have enough pics of just the fuselage to actually turn your RETRO into MODERN ABSTRACT ART.

BE STRONG AND CARRY ON.....!!!

:roll:

Looking forward to seeing this one finished


After 7 pages I'd just like to see it started :lol: :lol:

if you give me nice 730er parts, then I build it still finished :wink:
..and we know the 730er has become very rare, maybe it will be a mixture of 730 and 732nd!! :(

..maybe someone has a beautiful white Turbo saddle for me? (not the new version) :?


Looks nice.

With those forks you should be looking for m732/734/735 stuff apart from the hubs/cranks/seatpost as things like low pro cantis were in by then I think.

What rims are you using? I think you need to go properly black rather than grey anno - rm20 or specialised might be good options..

no fella, my photos have nothing to do with sentimentality but show only my love of beautiful bikes ...and I think such bikes have earned it.

Your cannondale is very nice, only these Spinergy wheels ..hmm! :?
