Hi Guys

Wondering if you can help me get the exact specs of Steve Peats 1993 Kona Hei Hei. This is what I have at the moment:

Steve Peat 1993 Kona Hei Hei
Frame: Material 3Al/2.5V titanium, Sandvik
Stem: 150mm Ti Velocity
Fork: Marzocchi XC500 (51mm)
Fork Boots: Lizard Skin
Shifters: Grip Shift X-Ray 800
Grips: Grip Shift Shark Tooth Grips for Xray 800
Front Brake: Hope cable-pull disc.
Front Hub: Hope Ti-Glide
Rear Hub: XTR M900
Rear Brake: XTR M900 Canti
Brake Levers: XTR M900
Rear Mech: Shimano XTR M900 8-speed
Front Mech: Shimano XTR M900
Tyres: Ritchey Z Max
Seat Post: USE
Bars Kona Race Light titanium 150
RIMS: RM-14 Araya

Seat?
Cranks?

I don't think the cranks are XTR M900 although they look like the have shimano compact rings.

Does anyone have any images of the bike that might show up more details? Also would be keen to see the MBK 291 issue with the article at a better resolution.

Thanks, Russ

The crank could be a Sugino XF Mighty?

The seat looks like a Selle San Marco Regal?

My best guess anyway!

Sugino XP, innit, and XTR rings.

Front mech looks like DX.The crank has a Campag look to it,although scratch that,its definitely a Sugino Mighty XP.Kona specced various Sugino cranks back then-Impel was one but the Mighty was the high end one.Were Xrays a bit later,95 or 96?I think in 93 Tomac was running SRT 500 Gripshift.

Thanks guys. super helpful.

i am pretty sure the grips are X-Rays. The blog post on Kona World list them as X-Ray SRT600
http://cog.konaworld.com/steve-peats-1993-kona-hei-hei/

But I think they are the 800's as it looks like the have teh clear casing. Also the red shark tooth looks like the ones from the 800 series X-Rays.

I thought I'd saved a few of the pictures from the MBUK website, but I can only find one on an old hard drive, and that doesn't show any more detail than the picture above.

The Wayback Machine hasn't saved the pictures either:

thanks jim, I found the same thing re images of the bike.

I am also wondering if maybe he was running a royce rear hub rather than XTR given the stickers on the bike and that possibly the front brake calliper is not a hope one but maybe something like an earlier Formula, as It looks different from a hope especially from the image you posted above.
