I picked this up last night from a local freead. It's in great nick. Looks like it's only a couple of years old. Almost as per the spec list in the '96 Kona catalogue. The only differences are the back tyre has been changed and it is listed with gripshifters. This has LX combos. They look like they go with the bike so might have been an option bitd. I particularily like the indicator windows. Very slim and look as if they came out the box yesterday. No fogging, crazing or cracks.

There are a few wee chips on the paint. I'll need to go to superdrug with my daughter to get some matching nail varnish!
The original saddle has some tears and one of the Bartender grips is damged at the bar end.
