Is anyone able to tell me if this is an Atom Bomb or a later standard version. Stickers are missing but maybe a factory issued fork with a complete bike?

Thanks Al, consensus seems to be that it is along with the lighter brake arch?

it's only a lowerleg difference between them
Atom Bomb, looked like that.
BAM had a disk tab on that style leg
Alloy had cheaper cast legs.
internals etc. are all the same

Z2 were not lime green, Atom bombs has machined legs like yours. The arch was the same.

I always thought the Z2's made for Kona were 'Atom Bomb' and the aftermarket versions 'Light' but essentially the same

'Light' was a Z3 model (along with Z3 Alloy)
as far as I know, from the manuals and the tech tips etc.

Did you see the post I linked where Anthony says in a May ‘98 magazine there is Z2 Light advertised? :)
I do have these green Z2’s and mine says ‘Light’ aswell. I am not the original owners of those, so anything could have happened to them, sure.

I did, but that's why I said manuals and tech docs.
