Love it! Great to see it being ridden too. Wish I'd hung on to my 1990 Fire Mountain. The splatter job on it looked like someone had taken a bottle of Tipex to it!

like this, makes a change from the usual 'what colour should I get my Kona resprayed/powder coated?' Just splatter a variety of paint on it!

If anyone is interested The Bike Station in Edinburgh has one of these frames for sale at £60 or thereabouts along with a retro klein and GT i drive. They also have a Kona Muni-Mula that looks mint for £140. All sat there for ages so they may take an offer.

Hi Longun, fantastic job you've done there which I'm sure must have been alot of fun. I have a question for you...

I'm considering doing my own Lava Dome DIY splatter at some point in the distant future but was curious as to what kind of paint you've used for your splattering as you've obviously been very successful with it.

My first instinct would have been to try enamel paint but I'd be interested to know what you used...
