I was chatting to one of the guys at work the other week when I mentioned my kona chute.
The guy turned round and said that if I wanted it, there was an old kona sat in his back garden.
I didnt think it would be much cop but I said id have a look....
Well its (I think) a 97 fire mountain.
I remember my mate having one from the same year but in the other colour option (metallic blue).
The back wheel has had it:( and the front one needs a couple of new spokes.
The seatpost is bent
but I managed to wrestle it out
The tyres have seen much better days as the sidewalls have collapsed and the right crankarm is slightly bent.
Other than that, its in pretty good shape.
I was thinking about throwing a black deore lx chainset on it a pair of different wheels on it and just giving it a clean.
I havnt had a steel bike in about 12 years or so should be "interesting" to see how it goes.
Im not too sure about the frame size but its 19 inches from centre of bb to top of seat tube... but if i stand over it , it feels tiny....
Oh forgot to add.....got it for free
