Really nice!

It´s very difficult to get good photo that shows these nice colors how they are.

Are you going to ride with those tires :shock:

Will probably ride it as is - have saved the disk and tyres for almost 10 years for a bike like this - both are NOS. I don't think the tyres are kevlar though so may have to change them at some point for something a little lighter - maybe the 1.7 z-maxes I have stashed, that'd make fora ride :shock:

Why, are they that rare? I was out wrecking the NOS ones on my DBR this weekend :lol:

Beautiful bike BTW, I'm not fussed on Kleins as a bike but i really do love that paint.
