Here are some pretty poor pics of my recently put back together Kona Cruiser circa '97

There are some RC35s and better brakes to go on the front, could do with a spray, but the nexus 7 speed is working a treat. This bike will be appearing on an ebay near you fairly shortly:( must make room in the shed

hi,

i was just wondering what size your humu is? (tongue firmly in cheek as i typed that!)

Been after one for a while (since i first saw one way back when!) but they all seem a bit small... looks like an 18", am i right?

Cheers,
Albash

Hi

yep i think your right, the 18" it is, its a nice long bike though, much more relaxed position than your normal old school Kona ( compared to my Hahana anyway)

Saw one go on Ebay last month for about £165, just pedal back brake, looked really sweet, from the same era as this one.

Just wish Id kept those P2s!!
