Big plans for it though with a stripdown and clean and maybe even a fresh powdercoat on the cards.

Frame: 14" Kona Cro-mo DB

Fork: P2 Sport

Headset: YST
Stem: Kona Velocty 1"
Handlebar: Kona
Grips: Syncros
Barends: None

Brake Pads: Magura

Shifters: 200GS Thumbies

It's now totally stripped. Wheels are gone and a set of Marzocchi Z3's have arrived, along with a NOS Deore LX front mech. A Deore LX rear has been ordered so parts are coming together.
Need to sell the P2's and Velocity plus the Maguras still as money is getting low, but I have time.

The frame though is in good condition and the paint has held up chip wise, but the red has sun bleached to orange which is a real shame.
So it's going to get a fresh powdercoat probably in Red but I'll ask what colour he wants. Will get some decals as well, probably Fire Mountain as it share the same frame and the STX/LX components will justify the decals.
While i'm at it i'll get a stop fitted for V-brakes.

Still need to get:

Stem (a 1" short ahead is going to be difficult)
Bars
Chainset (Lx or STX)
Bottom Bracket (UN54 will be default choice)
Shifters (STX)
Chain.

Been a slow burner and time for a bit of an update. The frame has been hanging in the garage waiting to be stripped and over the past few weekends it has been Nitromors'd and I have brazed on a new cable stop for the V's, it's now ready to go off for powder coating (he does actually want Red) and all parts have arrived. Here's a couple of pic of the frame and new stop.

Hopefully find a decent local powder coater this week and get it away and then were just waiting for gil_m to get back from hols for some decals.

i_believe_in_fixes and devron683 have been great with the brazing advice but all I can say is that a decent gas torch is vital along with gas choice or the brazing wont go right.

Nope christmas now, we looked at his size and thought that it was a little too big for him on his 9th and 6 months has made a difference and he has had a growth spurt inbetween. I have all the bits anyway so once painting is done the assembly will only take a few hours.
