Until 1993, all Konas were available in iether a colour choice or black.

You often see a lot of 91-92 Lava Domes on Ebay, they will either be Purple or black.

I think they stopped that option in 1993 when the went to the rear colour-to silver front fade scheme.

Was it difficult to coax the riser bars through that velocity stem? Want to fit some risers to my Firemountain but took one look at the stem and decided it wasn't feasible.

You proved me wrong!

Hi Knobby,sorry for the delay in replying.....
It was OK fitting the risers to the stem,I used the "longer bolts and penny method".
Remove both the clamp bolts and screw in longer bolts from other side of the threaded lugs.
Use two pennies so that the loger bolts press against as you tighten them and push the bar clamp open.
Insert the bars and screw in the longer bolts just enough to allow you to wiggle the bars through.
When the bars are in swap the longer bolts for the standard bolts and tighten as normal.
As clear as mud.
