Got tired of seeing this just hanging on the wall so I decided to build up my DeKerf this past Friday and take it for a ride with the wife Sat.
I use parts from both my Kona Hot and Explosif that have been sold.
I think it turned out pretty nice.

2001 Dekerf Solitaire Frame
Paul Moto Lite Brakes and Critical racing Levers
CK Headset
Thompson Stem and Bar
Moots Riser
99 Zok Superfly
Mid 90's Hugi Hubs on Mavic 217's-clack,clack,clack
RF Turbines.
I can't wait to get the Dekerf Tuning fork and Bulid it using my Rasta Kit.

Beautiful! Very well done. Was this a culmination of parts bin gems from over the years? Or do you just have that much awesome stuff!

Thanks all!
After taking apart 2 Kona's and using parts "just laying around" this is what I came up with.
With that said, these parts(see photo) are what I will build it up with once the Dekerf fork shows up. I do like the simplicity of what I have right now but I have always wanted to build a bike around my Rasta Kooka cranks so.......this is it.:)
