here is my first ever Kona bike that I am renovating I have had this bike for 21 years as it was my first MTB I let my Mum use it for years then my Dad decided that it was a good winter bike without any maintanece lots of rust and bust componants i saw it rusting away in the garage at my parents house over the winter so I thought I would save it as it has been to the top of lots of Munroes including Ben nevis when i was 17 I have changed the colur to match my first car as i always liked the colur
