So the time has come to sell my steel '95 kona kilauea frame in 18".

Its in good order, no cracks or bends and has recently had a rattle can white respray, not the best but better than it was.

Has newer kona logos and homemade kilauea logo.

Non drive dropout has kona stamped in it, drive side has ritchey stamped in it.

I've wrapped the seatstays in carbon effect vinyl wrap and theres a chainstay protector from the same stuff.

Comes with original Kona seat clamp, Kona canti dog, Silver seat post (bit scuffed), Shimano Deore XT front mech, Easton EA50 100mm stem.

The headset isn't included as it was taken out just after the photos for my other Kona.

£90 posted in u.k. Overseas could be arranged at buyers expense.

due to my phone being an a**e, it'll be friday afternoon when photos are uploaded.

As to details of the fork,

It seems to work fine, air side holds air fine, the main issue is the spring side. I'm not that technically minded when it comes to forks, but seems the spring may be too soft and as never having took them apart i'm unsure, but they move up and down as they should.

When i got them they were missing a brace and the other was cracked on the mount holes on the brace. I made 2 new braces from aluminium plate, using the broken one as a template, they fit fine, just need finishing off, painted or polished.

Cosmetically they're in good shape, steerers rusty as to be expected and both brake bosses are present.
