Whilst sourcing parts and waiting for the Kilauea frame to come back from the powder coaters, I managed to sneak in this build.

It's a 1995 19" Cinder Cone, with parts mainly stripped from my recently built Saracen (frame now for sale!).
I was originally planning a rigid build, but the P2's are going on the Kilauea and I like the way the colour matches the Kona decals.
The frame isn't perfect as it has some chain suck and spots of surface rust, but it's straight and orginal with no dings or cracks.
