Were Kleins ever good, other than having nice paint? In my time they were always shit bikes.

That could be worth $5k if he puts in storage right now and stores it for 100 years.

i'm on it. what size?

hey , i never said " hate " , and i never said " wah , wah , wah " :lol:

yeah sorry i may have taken some liberties in quoting you

I have a set of black Cook Bros cranks. A matching BB would be awesome.

werd, in 2111 the salvage price of aluminum will likely be through the roof

personally i wouldn't pay 1/10 of what he's asking for that thing. but i appreciate the aesthetics and history, and figured others might too

rain' , start your project at our community bikes . . . aside from the wheels , i put together this years' 'cross bike for less than 200 . and grovelling through the bins is half the fun .

way too big for you rain, but a super sweet deal for a biggun

ocb is not a good place to look for a frame/bike these days - they know what the hipster are willing to pay and price accordingly. also a very frustrating place to get stuff and work done unless you a) know exactly what you are doing and/or b) work with jesse

Sorry, wasn't aware this was a thread aimed at finding you a bike! I was just posting what I thought was cool/vintage.
