Im so happy to see so many lovely old Kona's still being put to good use and being cherished at the same time. I hope I still see them on the trails when im 50+ !

I particularly love the rasta s/s Hot, a couple of the Hei Hei, and the £10 Hahana! Considering its a budget bike, it looks so right.

Mine are currently a work in progress, but I nearlly have everything needed to build one up so watch this space...
