Nice colour, is that the original paint or respray?

I liked the single speed Kona chainstay, hope you dont mind me asking where to get them and I fancy having one for myself.


Thank you for your commentary, the color is new, but it is the color Kona Explosif for Spain.

I have drawn and designed the stickers. The software has been AutoCAD and CorelDraw. It has been a delicate work of rebuild.

This is really excellent work. For those who haven't seen one, below is an example of the original paint/decals of a Spanish 1996 Explosif. I'd say chiringuita has made about as exact a recreation as you're ever likely to see.

Incidentally, I'm not sure whether the yellow 96 Explosif was produced exclusively for the Spanish market - other 96 Konas came out with different colours from about half way through the model year, so this could be the alternative Explosif colour. But on the other hand, I haven't heard of one anywhere outside Spain.
