Another one for the collection.

Bought on here from SteveKona27 viewtopic.php?f=2&t=264978

Assembled with a few extra bits from 'stock' and ridden out today. What a go-er!

Well chuffed, may treat her to a lick of powdercoat at some point.
Cheers to Tad for the generous karma Impact headset and LX cantis.

I know what you mean, I love the colour too....... :(
Sadly, there is a fair bit of rust that you can't really see in the pics. It would really benefit from a strip back and re-paint, It won't be another white Kona though, not to worry. :wink:

Absolutely no need to re-paint - check out the touch up job here:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=265433

It's a 95 model and IMO the best specc'ed CC they ever made.
