Hi Folks, I just stumbled accross this forum and it's excellent! Dug out my old Kona from the garage 2 nights ago and it was looking a little sorry for itself so I spent a good few hours cleaning it all (each individual spoke with soft wire wool and degreaser etc!!)
Just wanted to revamp it for the summer to do some road riding on. I still can't decide whether to convert it to single speed or not....I don't want to spoil it's origionality..
I've used it loads and owned it for a few years but just kept it in good nick and didn't lean on the floor etc, hence the paintjob is still mint! I was pleasantly susrprised how mint it looks!
Anyway here are the pics - let me know what you think.
The few other parts I want to get are as follows, just to tidy it up:
1) THOMSON stem (black)
2) THOMSON ELite seat post (black)
3) New Grips
4) 'Minimal' pedals (prob SPD's but still un-decided)
5) 'Retro' Kona P2 rigid forks
Also if anyone can confirm the year of this model that would be great - I bought it when I was at college and can't remember!
