Here's my "new" Kona Kilauea, not 100% on the year but am pretty sure it's '94. I'm dead chuffed with it

Build is:
Hope Headset
P2 Forks
Wheels: DT 240s Hubs, DT 4.1rims, DT DB black spokes, black alloy nipples + eclipse tubless kits
Thompson Post
Avid Vs
Raceface Stem
Easton Bar
WTB Rocket Saddle
Truvativ Stylo 180mm X-Type cranks
Minimalist Ritchey all steel pedals (just the best at mud shedding)

Should go nicely with my '95 P7

8) Very nice... steel Kona.

I think '94's were grey, '95 white... so maybe '96?

Someone will be along shortly to tell me I'm wrong though I suspect.

sweet

but i'd ditch that nasty clumpy bolt-on cable stop

the original canti one (that wraps round the seat tube) can be drilled out to accept a piece of housing

96 I'm sure.

Nice light build on a lovely steel frame.

That thing is going to ping!
