After nearly 12 months of owning my King Kahuna I finally got around to pulling the wrong bits off and putting it back together with more acceptable parts over Easter.
1997 Kona King Kahuna 20" (the decals are a bit scratched and cracked but they're original)
1997 Marzocchi Z1 Bomber in Tangerine Dream
Chris King gold
Race Face SyStem in Yellow
Easton CT2 carbon riser
Bontrager (came with the bike)
M951 XTR (should be M950 but had trouble finding a good set so these will do).
M951 XTR 8 Speed STI units (again should be M950 but finding them was hard)
XTR M952 Medium cage
M950 8 Speed 12-32
Race Face Turbines 180mm in yellow
Race Face 44/32/22
none at the moment (those on there were to allow riding around the garden)
Ringle Ti Twisters Green
Mavic 517 ceramics although the surface is gone on the rear
Chris King classic hubs Black
DT Swiss Ti gold
Easton CT2 Carbon
History: From the build of the bike when I got it last year and conversations with the previous owner I'm led to believe that it was built up as a frame sometime in early 98 as apart from the rear derailleur all the parts it came with dated from then. There was an obvious yellow theme already on the bike with the stickers, cranks, stem seat edges and spokes which seemed to work so those parts have remained. Finding an original Z1 with the a long enough steerer for the 6" head tube took a while but I found one in the end and it works very well with the rest of the bike.
Sorry about the poor photo - too much sun over here
, I'll post a better shot this evening (my time).
