I've been wrestling with this decision for a few weeks now but I've finally decided to bite the bullet and sell my Kilauea. It's a difficult choice as she rides beautifully and just looks "right" (to me anyway).
It's a 1995 model in white, Kona size 18" but I will confirm actual top and seat tube dimensions later when I get a tape on the frame.
The paintwork is all original as are the decals so obviously being 18 years old there are knocks and marks but overall it's in pretty good condition. I have a set of new decals from Gil that I will include, I got them when I got the frame but never got round to fitting them.
Photos can be see on the build thread HERE but if you want more or any close ups of cable rubs, chips, etc just ask and I can email them over.
Spec wise is factory/period correct and is as below.
Price wise I'm looking for £250 collected from Nottingham/local meet. I'm happy to post at cost but would prefer collection/meet as I'd like the buyer to fully inspect before parting with cash.

Now £225 collected

I think you should both just man up and stop letting your women dictate your collections......................................................................says the man selling 2 bikes so he can try and sneak one more in without his wife noticing :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
