Hello folks,

Whilst searching for build parts I came across a 98 Kona U'hu. The bike is immaculate - like new. Not a mark on it. XT rear mech, LX front mech, Mavic rims, original Kona tyres, STX RC shifters, Marzocci Z2 Bam forks, Fox 5 rear shock etc.

Anyway I bought it as was considering pinching parts from it for another Kona hardtail build. Should I just keep it as is... exactly how rare are these?

Thanks

They are nice and pretty rare as old Konas go, i had a 1997 one.
Keep it and ride it or sell it on to fund the other build :D

That looks like it's been sat in a shop forever. Nice find. I don't think I could bring myself to strip it.
