Allright, now it's my turn :mrgreen: :

Recently I managed to buy a, in my opinion, very nice 1992 Klein Attitude.
I like it just as it is (shimano XT), except for the red Ringle skewers :facepalm: (so if anyone is interested to swap these for some nice purple or clear ones, please send me a PM).
It seems to be a very late 1992 model with the 1993 moonrise color (one of the first i suppose).
The paint is, i think, all original and the colors are still smashing.
So, i'm pretty happy with it 8)

Cheers...

It looks great. The colors seems to be shiny and no faded.
I have the same bike, same color and 27.2 seatpost too. However mine it is not in so good condition.

Congratulations you have a beauty

That paint job is stunning! It's on the stem too, I love that attention to detail.

Congrats on your score. Very nice bike and good to see you keep it simple (XT) rather than adding purple. Maybe try out some amber wall tires. Combined with the silver rims it could look even cooler. I love black wall tires, as they bring out the brightness of the color scheme, but only when they come on black rims either....like this one.

Anyway, enjoy it!

Very nice bike, agree on the tires though.
Amber will finish it.

Thank you all.
I also agree on the tires.
I've allready order a nice set amber walled tires but they haven't arrived yet.
Just could't wait to drop some pictures here... :D
