I though I would never find a picture of these. Only saw 1 pair back in the early 90's at a shop in a display case for $650 USD, lasted a couple years with no buyers, then one day the owner offered them to me for $350 USD w/ BB & tool. I thought about them for a couple days, but when I went back they were sold. I always regretted not buying them.

Notice the chainrings.

Found picture on other site.

I remember being in awe of those when they launched. Ridiculous money ISTR. I have never seen a set in the metal. The Coda version is a pale imitation.

A friend of mine had one of those in his HeiHei bitd. It was amazing to look, and hugely expensive... It´s the only one i´ve seen so far...

Take a look at his bike (in 1994)...

If you look at the price sheet you posted of the Kona Hei Hei build, the cranks are 1/3 the price of the titanium frame !

There was a used one on ebay 3 years ago that was finally bid up to $900.
FirstFlight owns one in mint condition, maybe he'll show us a picture?

I know ofcourse the "regular" coda magics but never this one with the special rings.
