Yeah... Bollocks :)

Quick Google search confirms my suspiscions: Spesh have been making Stumpys since the early 80's and Kona were only founded in 1988!

It *might* be a stumpy but there's no way in hell it was made by Kona in 1987!

EDIT: Or it could be an early Kona (judging by the straight forks).

It's complete nonsense. Looks like the seller was originally saying 1979 too. Looks like a mid-range 91 or so kona.

'before specialized bought the kona trademark' - so that's any time in history then!

Strange to go to all that trouble on such a dodgy story and I'm guessing that 2006 mtbr thread was about the same bike last time it changed hands

That is my suspicion too, the decals look very homemade so likely a Kona that was repainted.
