I could eat that Kona for dinner, my mouth is watering

Totally agree, that is one seriously good looking bike! Is that the original colour for the Kona Hot in that year?

nobody uses this so i'll let it slide

If its the disc brake you talk about its not true, I did build quite a bit of customer bikes with Formula disc brakes in the mid 90s (94/95 if I remember right)

These came in late 1993.
