I have had this frame for a while, I finally had Dave W give it the Aurora treatment. Once again, he did an amazing job. This might be my favorite right now. I am not sure if in fact it is a 1989, maybe Martin can give me an idea. The SN is: 2MBD9

Thanks. This is a frame I had hanging in the garage, so she was aware of it. Also, I am getting rid of my backfire Pinnacle.

Very nice paintjob, one of the nicer ones.
Why selling the Pinnacle and take a respray on the Mountain Klein?
Do they have different geo or is it just the colours and a new build? Backfire is also beautifull in real life.

Looking forward for progress.

Cheers
Martin

I never ride the backfire and I need the XT 730 parts from it for the Mountain Klein. It is going to a good home.

Finally done. The seat is way too high, I had just taken off of the stand. It is all XT 730 except the Suntour pedals, Chris King headset and brake straddle cables.
