Hi first post, I'm starting a restoration on a Kona Explosif. I tried posting pictures but got a message saying I need one post before I can list an url. So I'll follow with pictures as soon as possible.

Ok I'll try again with pictures.

Hi, first post. Just picked up this bike from original owner, he thought it was a 91 but wasn't sure. Custom paint job. I'm not sure what I'm going to do
with it. The paint isn't too bad except for the green section, I'm thinking about just getting that re-done. I'm trying to track down decals too. I found some 93s listed on one of the Kona retro sites and I've e-mailed a guy in the UK who might be able to run them off for me. Anyone else here have leads about what I can do for decals? Any suggestions about anything else? I don't need it to look perfect, I just want to spiff it up a bit.

Most of you know a lot more about bikes than I do. I just know that the early to late 90's Konas are my favorite bikes

I had a Kona in that green - cant remember which one though. It ended up with Kona Chute colours.
