I can't tell a dif in the color. But i know you have your doubts so i get it.

For road bikes, Kona made hot rods; not race bikes. What i think is so cool about those mid/late 90's Kapus is, sure, they were skinny steel with a quill stem but, more impressive, was the taller head tube and sloped top tube. Nobody was doing that. And other than the skinny tubes the style is actually surprisingly modern.

There is no other non custom frameset from that time, IMO, that would look as good with a semi modern (no four arm crank! not black!) groupset on it if you went that route. Then again, at least silver standard ST campag cranks are easy to come by.
