There were 2yrs bonded Explosion. The 1994 one came with red metallic tubing in front triangle, polished tubing in tail and black lugs. The Marzocchi XC51 is often seen on those bikes, but initially it came with a SR Duotrack forks. I understood that customers unhappy with the performance of their forks simply got the Marzocchi from Koga. Moreover you find STX SE and ITM cockpit. The 2nd year, 1995, the Explosion was all blue metallic. Marzocchi Zokes forks, LX/XT and again ITM supplied the cockpit.

Both Explosions were all aluminium. There was no such thing as an aluminium Koga with polished tubing and black lugs. For 1993 there was one with polished tubing, but with pink lugs :)

Maybe it is an '94 Explosion with paint stripped off the tubes in main triangle?

New updates:

8sp shifters, Avid-V-brakes and different sadle.
I know, the v-brakes are non retro, but I really needed some brake-power.
