Lovely bike there...what frame size is it??

I had a 96 Hei Hei which I got down to a silly weight...love what you've done with yours and I actually like the cattleprod on there!

Such a sweet bike - well done! How does she ride? I think the stem looks ok. I think we're all a bit too used to seeing Velocitys ;-)

I'm not normally a fan of Konas old or new, but that bike hits the sweet-spot. Very tasty.

Thanks everybody for the kind comments.

I just need to get out and ride it. A quick blast down the road and it feels great! Not 20 years old! The only problem is I'm moving house and don't have the time to ride it off road, and the weather is gorgeous just to rub salt into the wounds!!!

Sure they'll be a local trail near your new house where you can get it out and have a blast along a track :)

As soon as you get a chance after you've moved house then get out there and enjoy it but don't forget to report back to the crowd of admirers your bike has now got and i'm still certain i can hear your bike asking me to take it ;) ..
