Hello there. I'm new here. Fun isn't it? :-)

The tensioner is going to be replaced with a 'magic gear' and not keen on the cranks. Really impressed with the original hubs though.

Nice classic Kona. I'm sure the kona fans (of which there are many) will be loving this.

Sweet ride! 93 is my favorite years for Konas, I think... that fade paint looks great - and damn, the shape of that bike really just is right to me!

Ooh, and what hubs are they that are still running smooth?

Thanks for sharing, and cheers! :D

The hubs are pre-Parallax LX (on barely worn Mavic 231 rims).

I don't think this bike has been ridden much. Shame really.

Although I am going to ride the hell out of it now I have it! :-)

I love Kona's, my 96 Hei Hei was great and rode like a goat up a hill on steroids....

Nice set up dude!

By saying your Hei hei wasa sweet ride I presume you sold it. What makes you do that, I'm gonna get buried with mine.
Benjiman, beautiful, original. It's inspired me to get mine re-sprayed back to original. Anyone got any idea where I can get '93 Kileuea decals and the recipe for the correct paint?
