Re-built Kona, only original parts are the rear mech, brakes and the seatpost q/r. 17" frame, re-built and sprayed bombers.

Looks like a bike my racer friends would've been riding in 2002 ('cept the Bombers and the Egg Beaters). Nice :)

After 2001, kona colour schemes did get a bit gash. Saying that I do like some of the new 2009 stuff, looks much better in the metal, but the good years were pre 2001.

Yes it does have a disc mount.
It's made of Easton Ultralite so the frame is light, 3.5lbs +/-
It has a 80mm fork at the moment which gives it a 71 h/a and 74 s/a, I should think it would take a 100mm fork no problem (look at the scandium explosif of mikefoster, same year frame )

Just snapped the forks in half, so have put a 2001 pair of coil Z3s on it. I think I will be getting a pair of Salsa cromoto forks and putting flat bars on it.
