few more pics:
interesting, i notice on yours, it has a very interesting clue, to the topic of this thread......you have a sticker on your frame that says made in japan......?????????
I can't vouch for the authenticity of that sticker - but I think that a fair few bikes were design in north america and manufactured in Japan - some very good welding tech out there.
Loving your re-furb thread - great job - must admit when I first saw your bikes I though they were NOS or very well looked after!
Awesome work shop too - is that yours?!
Where did you get the decals from?
Thanks for the info on the 'noodle' all makes sense now!![/quot
the refurb im convinced was needed, too much surface rust for me, the workshop is mine and a nice size too, which is a great advantage.
the stickers proved a bit of a nightmare for me really, and very good friend of mine sat down with me and after hours of tweaking we got them 100% spot on, i tried all avenues to get replacements, but came up blank, since i have had a pm sent to me, letting me know of a guy called gil, that does decals, unsure if he has these on file, i kept finding i could find later ones but not the original tbg kona set.
if you need a set and gil cant do them let me know id only be too happy to help....
