There is a link to another in the ebay watch with some more info i believe.

Edit: no info just one that sold one ebay but someone did have some more info up. A catalogue scan or something.

Looks stunning polished! Deserves more than SIDs on it though. Some Z1's maybe?

It was their XC 'Race' Frame but looks bulky enough to be a play bike... amazing looking thing. I'll PM you guys about prices but I'm open to offers, I've not even opened the bike shed in the last week or so and have a feeling there might be a cull on soon following some of my wife's recent comments!

I couldn't hold out any longer, everytime I open the bike shed it tempts me...

...so the Kona has been pulled apart:

Looks nice even with a couple of bits on it, but 20 mins later and I think it's starting to look even better:

I'm not usually a fan of new fangled aluminium shenanigans, but I really like that. :D
