Latest addition to the retro kona collection. I bought this frame from a member on here. Its a 1994 AA. Going to be a 1x9 but the budget is relitively light, would ideally like to get it resprayed but I'm not sure about getting new decals.

Like putting 3 spoke alloys on an E-type!

Personally I just can't stand 4-arm, it just looks completely out of period. It's a gorgeous frame, just some nice 5 arm 94/58 cranks would look better.

Personal opinion.
