I don't usually like white ones, but that looks good in white with black. And Wu-Tangled ought to approve of the one splash of colour.

I kind of think it would look better with decals, but I'm not sure which ones you should use. The frame is a 97 of course, but the yellow 97 decals would add to the yellow pedals, and Wu-Tangled wouldn't approve of the one splash becoming two splashes.

It might look good with black decals, but the earliest ones they made were the 99s, which might be a bit big as they're made for an aluminium downtube. Anyway, just a thought, this is what 99 decals look like.

I have some OG kona decals i think from 99, but i'm not too keen on using them. I really like the look without any and the paint finish is matt and a bit rough so might not work either.

I thikn i'll save the decals for my next project.

Just to clarify, Anthony what size is it for certain. I know you have the eye to tell just from the geometry of a kona.
