Not completed yet but heading on the right track I think. Once its done i'll put it up with the spec sheet.

Sorry for the poor pics, i'll need to try and borrow a better camera.

Many thanks to everyone i've bought parts from.

Cheers guys.

Aye, it is a 96. Really like it a lot.

Spent a fair time over the last few days polishing.

Still a few things to do to get it finished off, but I ride this every day at the moment, so needed to get it going for now. Also run out of money.

More pics.

Wow, I hope that's not an O-Beam! You need quite a long post to have that much showing on a Kona.

I agree with CCE that it would look better with silver rings, but aside from that it looks great. I always wondered what the point in a short-cage rm was, but if you've only got two rings to deal with I guess it's ideal.
