Got this off Ebay last year but it's been in my shed gathering dust until now. The forks were off this forum (thanks Beavis).

Stuck on an old seatpost, stem and saddle to see how it would look built up.

The question is what should I do to it?

I really want to go down the "Another White Kona" route - sorry but they look so good.

Anyway onto the pics...

Keep the red frame as the only red.
Black groupset, no silver.
Black rims, hubs and spokes if you have them.
White grips.
White tyres/walls.

Yeah, I think you're right. :?

Guess I'm in the wrong section - how do I move the thread?

- Done!

+1 keep the red. I think it looks good, just touch up the bad bits and save that money on nice black components. Looking forward to watching this!
