Hello Folks,

Here's my Kona Lava Dome 1993. I've been browsing Retrobike and slowly collecting bits to re-build it for a while now...

Image

The photo was taken on the sunny day we had in May earlier this year (anybody remember that???). :roll:

I have the following drive-train for it:-

LX M563 chainset
XT M737 SGS rear der
XT M738 front der
XT M737-i cassette

Image

I have some new decals from Gil_m, a respray is planned and I'll update this thread as the project progresses. When I finally get it finished I'll post it in Reader's bikes... :lol:

Look forward seeing this one when finished, are you have the same 2 tone colours finish on frame?

Cheers Guybe.

Not sure about the colour scheme yet... Would be good to keep the two-tone look but I also like the all-silver finish of the '94 Kilauea.

I second that. Where on earth are you finding this stuff :shock:

Love the bramah bars by the way, I had a black anodised set BITD with the ends as close to horizontal as possible, I must have looked like a crap 14 year old Chris Boardman :oops:
