Dam too big - am needing a 18 inch - take it Kona measure from centre BB to the top of the seat post frame tube for its size ? and not centre of the sloping top-tube?

I have a 1995 Kilauea and it doesn't look much like that! Did you have all those modifications done when you had it repainted?

Looking sweet. Only things that stand out for me are the bulky (crazily angled :shock:) seat and silver bars. If you could change those for a nice Flite and soem black bars it would look the nuts.

Loving the matt plack paint with the silver decals, looks very classy in an understated way.

Overall a top notch build imo. Would love an SS like that for daily use 8).

I bought the frame from Cass on this site and he had the respray done and had all the braze-ons and bits removed at the same time, so it can only be run as a SS now.

I agree, the saddle is a temporary measure im pretty sure ive got a Flight somewhere at my parents house so will put that on. Will keep a look out for some black bars as well.

Thanks for the comments :D
