Thank you!

It was hard to find the colour but at the end I chose that "lovely" one, as you said. Your Kilauea 1994 has also a lovely colour. Come on, which Kona 1994 has not a lovely colour?? :-)

Cheers

I acquired a pretty tatty/dirty 94 lava dome few weeks ago
But as much as I would love to do what you are doing it would
End up costing a small fortune trying to source all new or nearly
New stuff to build ... I'm just stripping frame and giving everything
A really good clean and touching up frame/fork.. Replacing few bits
And pieces.. Bike will be used as a run-about :)

Yours is looking sweet cant wait to see it coming together

Nice job with the repaint! Decals look awesome! No Project Two stem?
A quick question. Do you know what size the seat post is? I ask because I have a '94 Humu and some lowlife ripped my post and saddle tonight while I was grabbing an order of fried rice to go. I assume our frames use the same size. Thanks in advance. PJ
