Got this Kona Hahanna (95 I believe) for a stupid low price. The dropouts are ugly, but nothing an angle grinder can't fix!!! Derallieur guides are going as are cable stops and being replaced by Magura mounts, and being run singlespeed for a bit of fun.

Got some RS Judy SLa to go on it too.

But, I cannot decide what colour to paint it.I had thought of fluro green with pink forks or British racing Green with cream stem and forks and brown finishing kit and a lot of polished parts

Thought I'd run a poll after a few suggestions from you guys.

So bring on the suggestions and after we have a few i'll run the poll. I will do whichever comes out on top

BR Green and Cream could look nice. Why not be original and spray it white? :lol: I was planning white for my current build as a homage to my stolen 95 Cindercone which I re-sprayed white in '01 but so many others have done it since. I'm stuck trying to choose an alternative though as white Konas look so cool. I might go with a 2 tone fade.......
