Look what the courier just delivered. This'll be the third one I've owned since 1998, and I'm pondering a rear disc tab this time.

Plenty of scratches to the Munificent Mustard, but no dents/dings. But this is the best riding Kona frame in the best size!

Even came with an unexpected, original LX chainset in good nic, and K seat collar.

I'll post build updates.

I had one out of the box in 1998. Z3 BAMs, Kona saddle with yellow inserts, and a mix of LX and XT. Frame was warranty replaced with a 1999 Explosif.

No. Only had it for a few weeks, and it was warranty replaced with an 853 Explosif, pics of which have been on these forums. Back in those days Konas customer service was excellent.

Nooooo to disc tabs. This and the Hei Hei of that year are the only ones I like in the range. Cracking colour and frameset.
