See picture in my gallery...

1993 16" Lava Dome
Accutrax style no name forks
Syncros cattleprod
Bontrager bars and post
DX hubs laced to Campag Atek rims
XT mechs and DX thumbies
DX cranks 24 36 48 Middleburn rings
Flite
Xlite q/r's, crank bolts and bar ends
Gold alloy bolts
DX SPD's

Not that light and a bit small for me but a very chuckable and fun winter retro ride, the orange is off for a respray tomorrow and will be rebuilt this winter with a XTR XT mix. Looking forward to it :D !

Awesome. Can I ask some things? I'm in the process of rebuilding my 94 Lava Dome... did you get new decals directly from Kona? I downloaded the 1994 sticker kit from www.konaretro.com and I was going to have them all remade through our local reprographics store.

For mine, I have the original project two fork, Velocity stem, and Kona handlebar. Plus, I found the original Sugino crankset at a garage sale last week. Stoked!

Hey there,

The decals are actually wrong for the year. A very nice frame builders called Argos Cycles in Bristol (england) painted the frame for me in funky powder blue and I asked them to fit contrasting graphic at their discretion. What they found were some in burgandy with the cream edging. But these are later than '95 I think.

If you look on e-bay there is a guy in england who sells bike frame stickers, search in sporting goods and put frame stickers and you ahould find his products. If not ask me and I will try and get you his e-mail address.

If no luck I am sure if you e-mail Argos they will try and help you, www.argoscycles.com
If nothing else it's worth looking at their gallery!

:D
