Hi all,

All lot of us on here (me included) love the custom colour scheme's Kona offered on the 95-97 top end models such as Hot's & Ku's.

I know we have a Kona's page already but it would be great if people could post up pictures of there custom Kona's (originals and replicas) so we had them in one place.

I see from Jones post of his 96 Hot there was the Red colour of the AA on offer which I didn't know til I saw at his today,

There is the green flower scheme that you can see on the 96 catalogue on the Ku and of course the "stars and bars"

I also new someone who had his 96 Explosif painted by Kona in a lovely Mustard yellow back in the day and I also remember the original brochure had 4 example colours of the custom jobs.

So Please anyone with any custom jobs post up some pictures you have (or pictures you have of other peoples bikes lol)

Cheers

Gaz
