took a punt on ebay on this and it should come up ok. going to get it powder coated white, and add some new decals. luckily it came with the all important brake stop collar thing and the seat clamp.

That looks a million times better 8)
You cant believe they were the same bike .well done to the P/C's and a damn good choice of colour.
What spec and dressage are you putting on?
Going for the Black/White contrast,or something different :?

to be honest its going straight on ebay as it is. got enough bikes! just took a punt on ebay as dont see to many 'period' kona aluminium frames, and this looked like a prime candidate for a refresh. will let someone else benefit...
