Well I've finally started my rebuild of a 1992 Kona Fire Mountain. Bare metal respray in Ford Signal Green with added pearl and superb quality sticker from Gil. I chose the later head badge, I know it's not period correct , but I love the later design.

Any feedback or suggestions on the build would be greatly appreciated. Unsure whether to try and keep it really original or build something with a modern twist...

Hi chief, interested in seeing this. Did you spray yourself or have it done by someone?

p.s. might want to tinker with your [img] tags...

Luckily enough my dad works in a Bodyshop which specialise in powder coating so they undertook the bare metal shot blast and poweder coat. The colour really 'pops' in the sun!

That looks amazing! Love the green against the black forks. Nice work!

Thank you, I tried to stay as true to the original spec as I could whilst adding a little something different.
