Explosifs - for paint and coolness it really has to be 1988, and for the overall nicest frame in terms of weight and rideability, 1997.
Kilaueas were nicest from 1995 to 1997.

All IMHO of course...

On the assumtion we're talking about steel only, for looks alone 1988-90, for riding the last of the line from mid-late 90s.

1994 is when they started making them suspension corrected, right? I think my Cindercone and Hot are '94, and they're great. Also love the rad paint on my '89 Fire Mountain.

Anyone know what year they built the red Main BMX? The shop I bought it from didn't know. Around the turn of the century...? Man, I can't believe some poor bastards have just one Kona. Bikes are always happiest at least in pairs, like guinea pigs. Some brands are more sensitive than others - to keep a Yeti alone would be really cruel.
