That is superb, have watched for a disc equipped King Kahuna for years to no avail. Eventually got a regular one and the frame cracked on my first ride I kid you not. Was at a retro bike glentress meet as well. Please if you ever think of selling this give me a shout.

Yeah disc mounts were a factory option I believe-don't see too many of them around. Keep searching one will come up for sale, not mine though-its such a great bike for the type of riding I do, xc around the South Downs with occasional forays to trail centres. Plus it looks great and had the same geometry as my beloved pahoehoe which unfortunately succumbed to a rock v thin walled ali downtube moment ):

Lovely, a great update to a classic frame. Ti frames (and especially Konas) are timeless :)

WOW! This is beautiful! Love the colours!

Which forks are they? Were they new? Will they fit a 1 1/8 Kona Hahanna from 1998?

its not often your bike is genuinely dusty after a uk ride so i thought I better capture the moment!

Had strange yearnings for a raijin the other day, this season is IMHO the first time in a long time that kona have build some decent looking bikes. Thinking of expanding the quiver with a full bouncer for away days and a hardtail xc mile muncher for the south downs.

Can you have too many shots of the same bike in slightly different locations?
