After trying for literally minutes to upload some pics on the gallery I got bored and thought i'd do a thread instead :wink:

Just thought id post up a few pics of my recently assembled ongoing project. All it needs now are 2 new bushes for the lower linkage near the bb and where the seat stays meet the linkage. Also a repaint and new graphics too.

what do you lot think so far....comments and criticism welcome :D

a respray/new stickers and a nicer (retro maybe?) crank and itll be a corking bike!

always wondered how they rode too.. looks like it has a teeny amount of travel by modern standards...! :wink:

Hmm I hear you about the cranks bud....not exactly "happening" are they :D

in time they will be changed to some a bit more in keeping with the rest of the bike....Now just need a job so that the respray and graphics can be sourced :roll:

The travel is 3" i think, it has 1" shock stroke i know that much.
As far as the ride goes....its lovely....feels like a hardtail in the way it picks up but with a little give for the rougher stuff.

You don't see too many of those - first of the Kona "faux bar" linkage FS bikes I think (Their only previous effort being a rebadged Iron Horse I believe) I like it, but it needs some RF Turbines or something else that suits the bike.

Thats cool....it was built up mostly from what I had laying around so it is by no means a finished article :wink:

May be for sale depending on how desperate I get for a modern dh frame and forks
