thank you all for the kind words--frankly im amazed that i was able to attach the picture so easily to the post. thought i would have problems.

rich- dunno how rare the hots were, to be honest. i know this one is #TET 547, so theres gotta be at least 500 more around somewheres.

Beautiful Bike mate!

Yeah, Hots are pretty hard to come by - especailly the Teasdale ones (1990-1995). They were available over here but only as frames, being the top of the range steel frames Kona made.

They were all (1990-1998) handmade in the US, originally from Tange Presstige Ultimate tubing and then Reynold 583.

Their alu counterpart was the Ku.

I love them!
