First, albeit small, outing on the Kilauea. The frame is a bit bigger then what I am used to, but its a sweet ride!



That is a real beauty, I am tryng to find a nice rigid large framed early steel Kona here in the UK. That was a steal for £100

I have one of these. Originally came with an XT rear hub and kona's own brand front hub. The bontrager bar is their generic standard Ti bar. There was a higher spec Race version at the time called the 118 after its weight, 118 grams.

Have a look in the Gallery and Archive. There's a catalogue in there.

Thanks for the info. It seems that this bike was original apart from the tyres and one chain ring. Have changed the grip shift for a set of Deore thumbies.
