For 95- is new era, but that is only my personal view. I do have a '97 bike myself, but it looks more classic due to earlier era trick bits.

You are familiar with www.konaretro.com ? Unfortunately not so much going on there, but the site features all catalogues and that is Cool.

Thanks! I rather use www.kona.dk than www.konaretro.com. There are, I think, all Kona bikes and its even recommended by Kona itself to find there something about old Konas. I've had a '95 Cannondale M300, when I find some old photos I'll post some. Greets!

Okay, didn't know it

It focusses more on more recent Konas, but I saw at least one nice Hei Hei - an ex-bike of the month title winner overhere :mrgreen: Will submit it in Link section.
