A pair of battered early Klein Attitudes

The two 1990 & 91 Klein Attitudes arrived here last week. I had high expectations for the frames and was hoping that the scuffs and scrapes were mostly superficial and could be removed with some elbow grease. Sadly, it looks as though the wounds are more than skin deep. Worse yet, they mostly appear to be signs of neglect and abuse, rather than battle scars earned by years of good riding.

The future is uncertain for these two. I'd really rather not repaint, but I'm not sure any amount of buffing and polishing can make these bikes look good. Time will tell... now I just need to find some.
