Gil is really the best and only place to go for Kona decals, at least here in the UK. You will be very lucky to find a full set of genuine decals in the correct style for the model and year you are after (whatever that may be). Although the odd decal does turn, I've not personally seen a genuine full set for anything considered 'retro' (i.e. the arbritray assignation of pre-1998).

I had Gil make these for my 1993 Explosif. He has most years and models on file, but he can tweak the design to suit your needs.

Just post your bike up here with some info. (once you get one)

This lot will know the bike and if not Anthony will :D , that would make life easier for Gil.

There are some decals on ebay but you would need to find someone to vouch for there quality.

Find a bike, then get in touch with Gil if you think you need new decals.

I cleaned the Kona warehouse out of their retro decals last year. They didn't have very many. All for 1993 Explosif. I slapped some on my 1992.
