I've been watching this out of curiosity, assuming it was a '99 model due to the decals. As no-one had bidded (£50 with 2 hours left, at time of writing), I looked closer and noticed that the seat clamp and dog collar combo is wrong for that year - it looks more like a '91 model. :?

The colour is wrong, though.. I know the 1990 catalogue shows an orange frame, but I've never seen one in real life photos. Also, the one being advertised has a yellow bit around the rear brakes, which no Kona has ever had.

So, I dunno.. is it an old, rebadged (resprayed?) Kona, or an old, rebadged who-knows-what?

Forward facing seatclamp bosses and the plastic dog collar point towards a 91,plus 1990 Konas have a metal brake noodle for the rear brake cable.
