I have a feeling it might have been for sale on ebay a few months while ago, possibly without the Kona decals. I seem to remember something like that in the ebay outing thread with discussions possibly pointing towards a generic frame (not meaning bad) sold and rebranded.

It was really bugging me so I started trawling. No wonder I remembered it, it was me who was asking about it in the first place back in June last year. The old ebay listing doesn't have the pics any more but it was definitely the same frame.

daughter's 16" 97 Lava Dome

bought the frame over here some times ago for that purpose. parts are from the scrap box - nothing special.

She loves it and rides it as often as possible - she tells everybody that her father was building that bike especially for her - she's proud abouth having a special bike and that makes me proud, too :D

And rightly so, that's a lovely looking bike.

Here's the latest (23.5lb) addition to my stable, making 5 Kona's in total now. I'll post better pics if I can ever get around to arranging them all!

File comment: 1995 Explosif, resprayed by original owner, but it was done by Mercian in Derby and despite the odd decals it's a beautiful paint job.

Yes, the colour is gorgeous, better view here. Not sure about decals because these are lacquered over (obviously) and as it is no longer original I kinda like a custom look. Still, plenty of time to decide what to do. :)
