Super Swin is my hero. There can't be too many like that still around...if any. I still think Kona should open a little museum at their headquarters and buy this bike fo display...with lots of other cool old Kona schwag and stuff.

I would say so, though it may have doubled as the 89 as well, at lweast in the UK. If I recall correctly, the fork you mention is only on the 88 FM and you don't see many of them around.
