You won't see a better stock example than this. Good luck with the sale!

That is very very nice, and a very good effort at stock. Never seen p2's in that colour before. Did they come like that?

Thanks guys, she is a beauty and I'm going to miss her greatly.

dablk, the P2's have been repainted.
The bike had Marzocchi's and the P2's I had were good, but slightly scratched. Unable to get a paint code anywhere I got a friend of mine who works in a body shop to analyse the fork colour using some vastly expensive paint scanner thingy and he matched the paint accordingly. The fork paint is accurate to the original Kona paint (or as accurate as you can match 17 year old paint) but it's 12 months old and looks a little glossy in the photos.

ellist ,the tyres were treated with Meguiars High Gloss Tyre gel.

Thats madness!....I own a car valeting business and use highstyle....not on the tread tho! Use Astonish "black shine restorer" as it keeps them supple and isn't oily
