I got e-mail couple days ago, there was man writing and his name was exactly same as my wifes fathers name... I was little confused :shock:

Quite soon I noticed that this is different person, he was offering old Klein for me. I asked picture and got this one:

Now I was really :shock: :shock: :shock:
I have wanted this bike many years!
Of course I wanted to buy that, but...
he asked what I would pay and I offered him :lol: :lol: :lol: .
He answered right away, that I can have it, but without pedals. 8)

I got it home today...

It took couple hours...about 4!

Now, how I build this?
Full XT 7speed
Full XTR M900
Mixed Campagnolo

Nice one you've got again. Reminds me of my first Attitude.

Really looking forward how this one is going to be finished.

Cheers,
Martin

Lovely. Think this is my favourite Klein colour way.
Partly because of colour, but also for the time and aura it had back then. So special.

XT 7sp is right really, rather than M900. But M900 more useable.
Campag a bit of an interesting one.

Very nice. 8)

Why was there a second seatclamp mounted on the first picture?
Is that a way to "intercept' the change of cracking the seattube?
