Klein Attitude 1990 - version 2.1

Some better pictures
It is really funny to see the people watching when you ride this baby around town.
I took over a guy on a trendy courier single speed and heard him say/shout,..: Cool Klein dude! :)

KLEIN ATTITUDE 1990 - 2.0 , and some other klein mountainbikes

replaced the tires

and also some pictures from the other KLEIN's

KLEIN ATTITUDE 1992 Horizon linear fade (in short HLF) with colour matched Rock Shox

Picture of the KLEIN attitude Team USA and Pinnacle

The KLEIN Pinnacle which is owned by me since new.
Here with the original spinner fork and Spengle wheels

2 Pictures of the 1996 KLEIN Attitude in TEAM USA colours with the ultra rare rigid fork.
Very light frame and rarely equipted with this fork because back then a suspension fork was the way to go
Frame looked ace when i got it, no scratches!

Picture of the ATTUTUDE HLF and the 1991 RASCAL, here with the PACE RC35, but later equipted with the orginal Spinner fork

Dropped off this morning at my place.
KLEIN Attitude 1990, the bike that made a big impact on me when i saw it the first time.
Setup as a singlespeed with Phil Wood wheels right now but i want to bring it back like original.
This is the early one with the square fork

Nishiki Alien SP - first changes

Replaced the front, it was way to heavy

Dean Stem and FybreLite bar

Nishiki Alien SP - 1992

Dan already guessed it ,..it's a Nishiki Alien SP designed by Richard Cunningham
Got this one yesterday and now thinking what to do with it,....it's in a bad shape,.... :(
Except for the rear derrailleur it looks completely original.
Here some pictures, it's looks better on the picture then it really is, there is some serious corrosion underneath the paint.
Might want to strip it from the paint , polish and then clearcoat it,..

Will tell some more soon about my connection with the Nishiki Alien and some history about the Nishiki Mountainbikes
