hello all, ive just joined your forum today after reading through various articles and drooling ovr pics for te past few days.
i thought some of you may be interested to see one of my bikes.
its a kona a'ha which my brother got from new when he was working at the kona factory in the mid 90s,
as we have basically shared this from new it doesnt feel very retro!
i also have a few other gems i will share shortly but thought id introduce myself first.

excuse the dirt, until recently it was being used daily :)

thanks, beaver

Beaver,

That should clean up quite nicely - I had forgotten they came with that colour scheme.

Also a nice sentimental link with your brother working for Kona at the time.

thanks guys :) well i was going to give it a birthday this weekend and ill post some better pics up then, also of my humuhumuetc.
unfortunatly the condition is not a1 as the a'ha was literally my transport for 2 years while my g40 was off the road as well as my xc bike.

See, we told you it would cleean up well; that looks great.

It just needs a new chain and, if looks were everything, it would benefit from a freshen up of the tyres to look pretty fresh.
