Looking for the old Kona brake levers from around '91.

Joes clips.

Tyresfrom the same period

Any of the original Kona grips that had a hexagon profile?

And any '91 16" frames in good condition w/ or without headset / forks.

You have my attention!!

Were those grips the imitation ones available in the bike shops back then?

The ones on the Konas had the 'K' logo, didnt they?

If you have a picture of the above items that would be great, let me know a price and we could bundle it in with the bike.

Well I think these may have been called "grab-ons" they are made of foam and really are just heaxogon grips. No logos.

The Lavadome has its original grip son it BTW - they are large foam round things. Swear they are original.

Yeah, they are originals, they changed to hex grips in the '91 range, one of the things I loved about the bikes when I was a kid.

I had some of the foam ones on another bike
