Here's an interesting one...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kona-Lava-Do ... SwCXVdrc1u

1992 era Lavadome wearing the Explisof original paint

OR

1992 Explosif with Lavadome decals?

The frame state looks original so it could be either. Only way of knowing is seeing up close.

Can we talk about the mech?

It's a lava dome sprayed kona gold by argos Bristol. Used to be mine years ago. I wanted it the same colour as an old explosif I had in 92.

Well that answers it then.

Seems to have been used quite a bit which usually indicates 90s worn patina.

Stand down chaps!

That's exactly what I first thought when I saw it but guessed it was painted a different colour as it said in the description it had been re-furbed. At least we now know for sure.
