I'm trying to recall if I've ever seen one in this paint scheme; the dull '96 Kapu livery. I think it's a 20" or did they do 19" for these? I'll have to check the catalogue later...

It's also a similar grey colour to the 1996 A A.

The 1996 catalogue lists 16", 18" and 20" for the Humuhumu.

I have quite a few pictures on file of the Humuhumu, and comparing tube angles, intersections and Headtube length etc, I would say that this one for sale is 18".

I would have had that in the blink of an eye if it had been in the UK. Shame.

I’m seriously considering butchering an old Kona frame by adding the extra tube and possibly some paragon or other sliding dropouts - maybe for internal hub or belt drive or summing equally daft.
Then get some new decals made up and call it ‘humuhumunonononoapua’ha!’
