Won this Kona Lava dome last night on Ebay for my brother and collected it this morning.

Can anyone shed a little light onto it at all.
I think its a 1999 Lava dome but I cant seem to find any pics with this colour.

I also managed to get hold of a Jamis Dakar Team Full sus bike from 1995.
Pivots are spot on, but rear shock will need replacing.

The guy also chucked in a Jamis Exile, but im not sure what year it is, maybe 1994 ?
I used to own an Orange Jamis Dakota, so when he said about this one, thought, maybe be able to get it to a nice standard.

The Lava Dome colour is surely from 2001 but I don't know why it has 1999 decals. Looks like a bargain - it would have cost you quite a bit more if he'd been willing to post it!

Picture and original specification here:

Sorry, the decals are 2000 not 1999, but this is the 2000 bike

and the black colour is right, I certainly don't remember an orange variant.

My wife has a Dakar Team too - it's has a ball burnished finish. I'll post some pictures later for comparison.

cheers guys.
The colour threw us both of when trying to find out the year.
It doesnt seemed to have had a respray, or new decals.

Wouldnt have been some end of 2000 one just as new colours were coming out would it?

Still its a stunning bike and rides nice too.
Got to change the bars and get it set to my size. Surprised how lighter it is compared to my 98 fire mountain.

Im on the lookout for some P2's for the kona (I guess I can run them even though it has sus on there now?) and also looking for a new rear shock for the dakar.

Cheers
tony
