So I have a 1998 Kona Kilauea 19" in the garage gathering dust. It is in almost original spec. (http://www.klassickona.com/oldgold/98bikes/kilauea.html
), I have owned the bike since new and I have all of the supporting paperwork, including the original bike shop hanger card!
I believe that the only changes are the wheels and saddle. They have been replaced by:
Front: Hope hub with Mavic 217 rim
Rear: Shimano LX or XT (Parallax) hub with Mavic 217 rim
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite
I even have the original Kona Break and Enter tyres that are practically unused.
I can count the number of times the bike has been off-road and got properly dirty on one hand. The bike has done maybe 1500 miles in total. There are a few very light marks on the frame and some cable rub.
I'll happily post pictures if people are interested.
Is there a market for Kona's in this condition, should I take my luck on the Bay, or split for parts?
