hi all probably a little early to be posting this but what else are you suposed to do when you're snowed in and bored?
gonna start a new build off in the next couple of weeks, when i bought the future shocks for my lavadome i had to buy this frame too, kind of a job lot thing. its gonna be a kinda modern retro jobbie using a 1992 kona kilauea frame built up with all modern kit but retro style.... maybe duraace thumbies and 2009 xtr stuff. colours will be be cream orange yellow and red.....
don't expect it to be finished anytime soon though as the misses will probably have a keen eye on the bank being so close to christmas :(

It was mocked up to look like a 94 Kilauea, but this is what it will have looked like originally
