A couple of months ago I bought a Klein Rascal
Since then i changed some small things,..put another stem/bar on,..tried the Pace RC35's,..polished the seatpost, replaced the crank but for some reason I can not get myself to finish it,..

It is a nice frame,..and the colours are still bright

The v-brakes were on the bike when i bought it and should be replaced by Onza Ho's but a kind fellow Retrobike member is interested in the bike so the chance is big that the Klein will go,..so i can buy my dream Klein

Drivetrain wise i am not going to change the parts.
I still have some beautifull Cook Bros RSR cracks available for this bike but the Rascal will be sold when i know what i want to ask for the frame/fork.
When this Klein is sold (And maybe the Defiant and EASTON aswell), i am first going to finish the Fat and then i am ready to start looking for the above Klein Attitude.
