Kona's are great! Nice frames, good luck!

I wish I had a 1994 Explosif frame to play with....
I wish I had room to play with 1994 Explosif frame....
I wish I had the funds to spend on building up a 1994 Explosif....
I wish I wouldn't get asked 'Why have you bought another bike?'....
I wish....

I would love an explosive too .

:oops: but I would put drop bars on it :shock: , the frames always look like a comfortable fast lightweight commuter .

Welcome Kona_man :wink:

Welcome!

I have previously emailed Kona about paint codes.
They said their colours were specific to Kona. Meaning that they don't match any "standard", international RAL paint codes etc.

As said above: If the existing paint is OK, just ride it!
Re-painting a frame can be expensive. Unless you pay to get it done properly (including the correct stickers) then it will probably look worse than the original paint (and actually be worth less, too!).

Have fun!
