Really nice end result! I really love how the angle of the top tube and stem are so alike. What wheels are they?

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, much appreciated :)

Totally agree with the post above regarding the top tube / stem symmetry. I tried explaining it to my wife but she just looked at me with a vacant stare :)

The wheels are nothing special, Vuelta Airline rims on STX RC hubs. They do the job though but I might be looking to change those first if I do do anything further to it.

Awesome restoration of a classic kona.
Glad I was able to help with the rather rough 'project' frameset. A top notch job!!

Cheers, it helps that I have a full stocked paint scheme and spray booth at my disposal when it came to the painting bit. The actual building was mostly new to me especially square taper bottom brackets, threaded headsets and quill stems so it took a bit of working out and some new tools for the shed.

Look forward to seeing yours when done, sounds like a nice project :)

Haha thanks Paul, no inference meant with the ‘rough’ bit. When you’re used to working on high end vehicle accident repair you tend to see plenty of defects in the paint! It was free of dents and dings to be fair :)
