Love the Murica paint job too. Always nice when you finally get the frame/bike you always wanted and it lives upto the dream. Great ETOE video, so much effort goes into it which makes you appreciate why these paint jobs are never cheap.

Ever since I first saw this frame, I noticed that the junction of the Seat Stay at the Seat Tube seems a little lower than other Kona frames.

I have seen this before on a Hot frame, but I can't currently locate the picture that I have on file - Alasdair my recall which Hot I am talking about.

Anyway, I have edited a couple of shots here to highlight what I mean; the other 1993 below is the next sequential Serial Number that I have on file.

Very nice! 8)
Were the Hei Heis made by Sandvik as the rear dropout welds and serial nbr look very similar to Sandvik-made 92-94 GT Xizangs?

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. Almost as if the seatstays were made very slightly too short and hence welded slightly lower down.
