Here's the first pic of my Kona Explosif from 1992

Some things need to be done within the next weeks:
new decals from Gil
new horseshoe
new equilibrium tyre (done)

Still looking for a Propulsion tyre and a new O-beam seatpost!! Anyone?

The rest is original!

My favourite retro bike regardless of price (just my opinion). They were great in gold!

Mooi wark!!

We really need to get both our Explosifs out together one day, darn we're only 30k apart. And the propulsion is a rear tyre, they wear faster so I guess they are more difficult as time passes. Keep your eyes open in the for sale section, I found mine here too.

And please post up some better pictures, fast!

In de blote kont!!

Pics of the full bike are a bit hard at the moment, because the bike is in pieces to clean and rebuild....... :P
I'm thinking of putting my MAG21 on the bike, but am not really sure about the looks. Any suggestions? :?

Cheers,
Bart

I don't think the 1992 would be suspension corrected. But if you do I'm not fond of Mag 21's, how about the Zocchi XC600 or 700?

They come in in satin gold and have the beautiful "holey" slider legs plus adjustable damping. From the scans section they were factory fitted option on the 94 Explosif
