Brilliant forum, a great read!
Here is my 1998 Kona Hahanna 18", which has most certainly seen better days. I've been riding singlespeed and just bought a Trek CrossRip Elite, so she's been neglected for the best part of 5 years.
I would absolutely love to restore her, as I've just moved next to a hill with some great trails (Kilvey, Swansea, South Wales).
Ideally I'd like to replace the forks, as they were never great to begin with. What are my options? It's a 1 1/8" size tube. Marzocchi Bombers? Which model?
I know I'm probably looking at new wheels, and probably hubs, and a new groupset whilst we're at it (jeez, am I talking new bike prices?) What are my options here...?
Is she worth it? Of course I love the nostalgia, but is she gonna be 'good enough'. She was a low end model in Kona's range, and I worry that the frame isn't worth investing money in decent parts...?
I've been dreaming of restoring her for a few years now, and I stumbled across this forum last night and I'm hooked!
Budget is around £200... am I being completely unrealistic?
