I thought that it was about time to start a thread about my Kona Muni Mula build. This follows on from this original thread http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ht=#678452
in which I asked a few questions having at first thought the bike was a Kula. Some of you were good enough to supply info with effect that it was actually a Muni Mula
I bought the frame, a pair of Z1 Bombers and a P2 rigid fork as a job lot after placing an ad on a local free classified website. I think the guy had used and abused the bike in the late 90s as a trials/jump bike ! It was in a sorry state so I decided to strip it down, clean it up and possibly get it sprayed up.
However, after much thought and plenty of elbow grease, I polished it up as best I could and decided to leave it in bare alu, warts and all ! There are a couple of small dents and plenty of nicks to the metal but I think it all adds to its patina of age. I don't have access to industrial type polishing so it's far from perfect but I like it. In fact I like it a lot so will use it as a first ride - no garage queen this one
Here are a few piccies to be going on with. I will post more shortly with a run down of what's been added to the bike so far and what, ultimately, I want to add in the future.
So there it is folks - not perfect but it's a start. Really taken to the Kona and would value any help if possible
More to follow soon.
