Nick - frames looks great - how/who did the restoration? was it a full strip & re-paint of a tough up? (interested as I have one just like it but its rough as a badgers!)
Cheers...but the plaudits must go to the man above, "Sinnerman"
. I was so impressed with his previous 2 Kona resto's, I thought I would let him loose on mine. He could fill you in, but is has been redone from scratch, and looks pretty faithful I must say (Not got it back yet)
I think the hardest part of the remainder of the build will be obtaining the NOS 26.4mm XC Pro post
Just how lonnnnnnng is that headtube..
And also, out of interest, what were those tyres in the pics up there^^^??
Just a stock 19" frame (trick photography). £10 pair of chinese "trax" tyres. I like them for pics as they have no markings and are a nice "skin" colour
ive got to say my friend, with all new NOS parts, the spec you have chosen, as well as the frame having all new paint , decals and lacquer, ....this is going to be as gorgeous as your BIKE OF THE MONTH WINNER.....!!!!!....
tell me are you going to be using a velocity stem....???
I think people are all Kona'd out these days. I do have the original bars & stem that I will get sorted at some time
