But as you say, different decals...and that colour scheme...did it even exist as an option back then? Or is the year wrong?

I thought the Hot's always had custom paint option?

Naturally, juat wondering if this was a colour you could choose back then. I blame all the Lava Domes in later years ;-)

'94 Kona Hot 8) looks to be the real deal as no rack mount holes hence the clamp on rack
Tange ultrastrong splined/ditched/ribbed down tube, nice. seems to be missing its tt decal Kona K custom . Bet the pics aren't doing the paint job any justice.

Any one want to ship it to me? :)

I would say it's a 93, given the short forks. I can't quite make out the dropouts, but they look slightly more 93ish than 94ish.
