Anyone need a monster size 95 Kapu? Here you go:

:shock:

(If anyone buys it and doesn't want the components - hit me up!)

Still need that 97 thought...

Brief scare this morning when I found a 96 Kapu:

Bargain price for a good project bike by the looks of it. But it's still 12 months too old...

If there's a will there's a way ;-)

Even with shipping, that kinda price makes it's more reasonable on the wallet.

good find that 96 - could be for my collection; but agree with fritzlite that Canada is not the easiest and cheapest country for shipping to Europe.... :roll:

But it's only $250CAN so if you can haggle a bit more and find some change down the back of the sofa... ;-)

As a side note, I find the colour for the 96 puzzling. It's very downbeat and low-key, quite unlike the rest of the range. I'm curious to what the thinking was or whether there was any at the time.

i like that year/color.. ..because its discreet, low-key.. and had a Kona Fire mountain from 96 for many years, in the same gray/blue color, as my do-it al bike..shop-pub-commute.. and leave (with big locks) on the street, because its not colnago -flashy
if...WHEN i get a 96`kapu.. im gonna use it as my daily ride.
many will just pass it by,...not knowing its a quality, light.. Genius frame..
the flashy-sunday stuff....is for ..well, ..sundays...
