That's a nice understated bike - I'd go easy on the anodised bling if I were you... :lol: There's a lovely single-speeded '90 Cinder Cone on here, can't find the link but it's here somewhere.

Its changed a tiny bit now however. Gearing is now 36:11, for fact road use (and better chain tension), brakes are setup better with NOS Chill Pills, and it now sports a more fitting early '90s Flite

Looks really good, my '93 Lava Dome arrived with a stem in similar fashion, how it didnt part company with the bike ill never know lol

Id just leave it as it is and ride it my friend, is this the first in your kona stable then?
