Note those aren't an accurate representations of the originals as they could be.

Head badge has only a K (ie no Kona text), and K is yellow with a black border,
King Kahuna has no leaves etc (they go on TT with Hei Hei decal),
Other TT decal say Kona custom not Race Light.

I did find someone who has made good reproductions for the 97 King Kahuna, will find it for you.

andrewl,

Chances are its me, the proof I posted is only a job I did recently for a customer, they were his colours and layouts and a King Kahuna, which is what I assumed “thrustyâ€

andrewl,

Apologies, just dug out the '97 catalogue

Headtube, shouldn't have "Kona" text
Hei Hei, should have leaves around it, King Kahuna on rear stays shouldn't, assuming it has gussets around the headtube
"Kona Custom" on top tube
"Kona Thumb" and "Ti Tubing" on seat tube

Will re-proof to "Thrusty" when he gets back to me

Gil,

Sorry I was being a bit pedantic - I only really noticed the differences as I was playing with my King Kahuna for the first time in months prior to logging on.

Some of mine are gettiung a bit tatty too, but I'll post some shots for refference if that's of value.

On the subject of changes the Kona K may also need some minor work too ;)

Cheers

Andrew
