Very nice, you cant beat a white Kona, it will always looked nice. I liked the decals, something different but nice, where did you get these decals done and is the frame powder coated aswell?

If you have a spare moment, I liked to see the frame headset and seatpost decals please.

This will be a nice build when finished.


frame is powdercoated gloss white - it looks like a wet paintjob!! The guys at the powdercoaters are cyclists and dont heavy blast the frame before painting so there is no pitting at all on the frame!!


will post some pics when the camera has charged itself again!!!


had abit of a build late last night................ be gentle

looking good, the saddle looks a bit 'bulky' for the post and frame, maybe it'll balance better visually once you get the rubber on?
