Good evening!..
So im wondering what the fuss is with the 90's steel konas.. so im now looking for one!

I dont know a great deal about them, so model isnt important as long as its approaching mid range.. With 1 1/8 steerer.

I like the look of the 16 inch sloped frame, project 2 forks would be nice. Not super worried about paint condition/colour but has to be solid with no dents or cracks :D

not in the market to spend a shed load as just want to try one but appreciate they have some value now!

willing to travel from crewe area, not too far!

Show me what you got, must be a few lurking in your sheds!
TIA

Got a 1990(?) Explosif I could be persuaded to part with, either frame and fork only or with full near original bits. Paint tatty, but structurally sound.

Lacking P2s. Thread discussing province with pics here:

PM if interested.

Saw this yesterday, I've no need for it and can't be doing with pickup from London but it looks like a bargain: https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/282695801721

How about this, 1993 Kona Lava Dome, lovely condition and performs flawlessly. 18" centre of BB to top of seat collar on the extended seat tube so more like a 16" frame from other bike manufacturers:
