:lol: I'm just as bad; they were destined for my blue 'Wot' because they matched the 531 decal, but then I started with the turquoise ano. and they clashed :?

So I used the grey to match the cables :roll:

Terrific Kona BTW; I shouldn't really like it, but I do 8)


Cheers :)

The fickle world of retrobikes :shock: You get the bike just where you reckon it's sorted then some part or thought makes you change direction :roll: And how do we justify it ? Well it's probably what I would have done/put on BITD :lol:

Love it !!!

Having seen this bike in the flesh I can confirm it looks fantastic in real life. Even better than the pics. Awesome build.8)

Thank you :)

I'm pretty sure it's m950 levers(think they remained the same through the years from 97-03 ? Minor tweaks and called. M951/2 but all looks the same..
Hopefully someone can back me up/correct me ?

Hope this helps..

Col :)
