1993 Kona Cinder Cone 18"

Totally rusted / wrecked. Everything seized and the chainstay split through rust. I can see no value in this so I'll sling it up the tip if nobody here wants it in a week. The pictures make it look better than it is! I took a punt for this on eBay which turned out to be a waste of time / money. :facepalm:

Collection from near Woking, 5 mins from J11 M25.

Theres only 1 way to salvage some money from this scrapper!- sand the forks off and put a grey base coat on them- also the seatpost looks ok.
Looks like the frame is scrap :roll: :wink: :wink:

I think it can be welded smoothly, after a little grinding thing is not crowded. things have been modified for the purpose. it is still worth a try

I can't be bothered to box it up! The whole chain stay is swollen with rot.

very difficult in such a rotten material, I think just as spectacular as hazardous

I need a middle chain ring. Would you karma me the crankset with arms if I pay postage? Depending on if the teeth are in good nick of course. Maybe able to collect these on my way past this week.

I am very new and have not figured out how I can upload a picture, but I'll show that we're a much harder thing is it has been touched :)
