If you look at this picture of a 93 Kilauea with the shorter 39cm P2, you can see quite clearly that the tyre is more completely filling the fork than yours, while the tyre is also much closer to the down tube than yours. These are both signs that your fork is longer than the 1993 fork.

The steep-looking head angle is an optical illusion - it's a standard perspective effect that you get when you take a shot that close up.

Alright then, I agree. I accept the optical illusion. :)

Thanks, that's clearer now. It's definitely a 94 with the correct forks. :D
