Early Kleins used the SR or NR FD. A amsll section of painted-Klein-sized tubing was supplied. The FD band was formed around it ,then a longer bolt was slightly bent(like an early OS Kryptonite lock mount and the nut was turned. My '78 Boron Reinforced Team Super features a FD done at the factory. Other features include a Gold NR/SR group with the 27.4 post. the multi-size Record C clamp came later.
