Just built this up to replace the old Giant Track (see hoegaardenadds1 topic).

It's the first Kona I've bought in 18 years. An old Humymuuymmyuymyuuyuyuyuyu,umymuy or whatever they are...

Anyway, real basic build and uber-cheap to put together but great as a runaround and with the humoungous wheelbase I'm thinking this is the perfect candidate for an XtraCycle....
