Love this bike. That was the Kona I was after in 1997 after saving up on my paper round. I ended up getting a Rockhopper instead, which was nice too. 8)

I love 1996-97 Kona's, they just look great.

Loved the 97 Hahanna! I have one as well :) But sadly it's in pieces. I'll have to rebuild her!

Took this out again for the old commute, may stick a charge spoon on it. That Flite was not kind....

Great build - nice to see a Kona getting a new lease of life. I might also put my hand up and say how chuffing uncomfy Flite saddles are. For such a coveted saddle, they don't have hurt - that said I think we probably have similar, and contrary, bottoms to the majority! :D

I was never a fan of the Flite, not to say it isn't a good saddle, it's just my ar$e isn't Flite shaped.
