clean tan walls (or ideally black walls), remove the bull horns and that bike is perfection for me. Purity spec. Save the bells and whistles for the Night Storms of the world....

Nah mate, i disagree, nothing wrong with the spec, im all for purity, but it needs something.

All klein fusalages are gorgeous, and known for there gorgeous paint.

plain is good, but that example isnt a good example for me im afraid, perhaps a little more black (perhaps cranks), or the inevitable Disc Drive.

I dont know, its not a great pic, but sitting there, it looks as special as a white kona.

Perhaps a Campag build, or add some sexy Nukeproof hubs, if it were mine, i think i would be stumped for a minute.

It's nice and the painters have done a great job and as you say you like it and that is all that matters.

For me though..kleins = loud paint

otherwise it's just like half the retro's at the momment on rb with owners playing safe and getting a white paint and black accessories.

NOS? This is a repaint! Maybe even powder coat....

Decals are wrong and the chainstay holes are drilled...

Carry on anyway :lol:

we know this already! I would say, it's a repaint NOS :lol:

I'm very disappointed ..you're a good painter, or? but If you can't see from my pictures that there is no powder coat, then I doubt if you know a lot about painting!

sorry I'm no KLEIN expert, which holes do you mean? :roll:

If I may help Nader

NOS is new old stock and not..resprayed to look like new

To say your no expert on the holes but then say John doesn't know a lot about painting is a bit like donald duck telling bill gates he doesn't know about computers

I'm no fan of Jons but I do admire most of the time he knows his shit when it comes to Kleins

You have a nicely re-painted/powder coated frame and the cats love it

I'm looking forward to seeing how the build develops
