i have never seen another flite on the trails in these colors, it would be around a 1998 vintage as thats when i rebuilt the bike.
Very nice Kona. First time I have seen a flite in those colours. Love the purple bits, takes me right back to 1993, happy days!
I came across a few of these BITD and sold a few, they are pretty rare and were issued to Italian pro-tour team riders, hence the Italian colours.
They were not available on general release, but not everyone liked 'em as a perch so a few got sold on.
COOL! I want one now!
1998 Kona 853 Explosif, 1999 NOS Kona 853 Explosif, 1999 NOS Lynskey signed Litespeed Obed Ti, 1999 Marin Mount Vision (custom), Cannondale Bad Boy 700c Disc (everyday hack) and a 1993 Marin for the Wife. Latest build in progress is a 1993 Marin Eldridge Grade with original paint.
