A while ago (sept 2016) I decided to build a Kona Hei Hei, thought about what to do for ages and settled on trying to recreate Steve Peats 1993 Kona Hei Hei. Firstly because it was a pretty cool bike and secondly as I wanted something that would be a challenge to source the parts for. Started with a post on http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 2#p2858902 asking for help to narrow dow the exact specs. There was a bit of going back and forward but I also managed to get a look at Steve Behr original images from the MBUK shoot, which helped immensely.

The Vital MTB video 'What's in Peaty's Attic?' was also pretty handy
