Anyone have the Uk and USA brochures for this year?

Ive just bought a Kona Ku frame and its decal variant doesnt appear in the catalogues in the archive?

those are 96 decals.

ref - my lava dome, see how the downtube has the "square" writing while the top tube has "hawaiian" style

it's a half-half of the 95 and 97 styles

Ah that explains it. Well done.

Anyone with a 1996 one then?

Mmmm, there's a Lava Dome just like that on eBay at the moment. Classic colours. £72 doesn't seem much, but it's got a while to go and it's pick up only.

That is awesome. Indeed, the square 'Kona' with 'Hawaiian' model name is 96. Didn't like it at the time but it definitely grew on me. Lovely frame, Jez!
