it slips over the end of a piece of gear housing, or brake housing with the rubber stripped off

Drapoon has done the same on his hei hei and it seems to be a great solution.

Looks like a good solution, the bikes in bits at the moment, I'm refinishing it, so no more purple goodness.. :cry: Unfortunetly the paint work was beyond repair (No chance of finding any touch up paint!!).

Thanks for taking the pics for me!

Well, it's been a while but here's an update on the 94' Kona AArgh, or just AA now as the horrible memories of how it looked when it arrived from ebay have faded..

A new paint job and decals later and here it is.. :D

I'm just not sure what to do with it as I want to start work on the Kula. This one may be up for grabs... :(

Looks awesome Pete!

I guess this confirms the Kula is getting stripped though :(

We'll have to trust that your aesthetic vision is consistent and you will soon present us with another standout alu-K!
