This has now been completed
Purchased the complete bike in August but it needed the P2 Fork and some small original bits
Pretty happy with the build and the ride!

XT thumb shifters would be nicer, I agree, but they are quite the same with DX. In their philosophy, I remember that Kona prefered thumbshifters than rapidfire and a lot of high range bikes got some DX thumb instead of XT

Yep, that's right, they didn't make the full switch until 1995.
