also looks like there splitting a 1999 Hei Hei (wheels and saddle on ebay now)


I bet my life it was this one that popped up on ebay last month and disappeared very quickly; it was almost entirely stock.

Apart from the additional gusset what is the diff. between an HH and a KK. Same tubing etc? Price diff. is silly, guess the KK is rarer but that is Merlin XLM money

The Hei Hei on this thread is almost certainly the same one that went for £450 a few weeks ago. The high bidder has exactly the same feedback score as this seller and he now has a set of Rock Shox forks up for sale at £99.99.

A King Kahuna went for about £880 recently, but it was a KK and it was an 18 inch frame. If this was an 18 inch frame, then I suspect it might have been snapped up at £550. I think the fact that only a couple of weeks ago the "market" decided that a 19 inch Hei Hei with easily £100 worth of parts, and what appeared to be original decals was worth £450, then I don't think it's unfair to say this is at least £100 or even £150 overpriced.

Interestingly no feedback has been left on the £450 frame/forks by either seller or buyer, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's the same frame!



that was me £877.89 :oops: .. :D...got slicks on at the moment..weathers great ..using her for work...sneak up on the roadie boys :lol:

Ernie :D

I'm a massive kona Hei Hei fan (upto 93 admitadly ) but i'm surprised by how people are contanstly saying there overpriced like this one,eh!! Brand new upto 93 not sure about 94 onwards but they were over a £1000 for a frame only,so i couldnt imagine it would've changed much in 94,and because of that a very rare bike. So why be so surprised when they put a price tag on it like this one,what would you do if you owned one,give it away!! Or maybe swap it for an over priced Klein with a fancy paint job and get some money aswell :roll:

Catalogue price for a 98 frame only...HH £1300, KK £1600. I think as discussed at the time if the eBay £450 with sids completed That was an utter bargain.
