this is my kona killer in 18"
1994 tange prestige
few changes to be made in the next week or so, cranks are going to change to m952, forks are going to be project 2's, stem is changing but im not sure what to yet and im sorting the rear hub (hope) when i can get round to building it :D

this is by far the nicest bike i have ever ridden- so fast on the singletrack 8)

Very nice, I would change the cranks for silver or grey XTR ones to finish it off nicely, the red cranks dont seem to blend well but otherwise nice Kona you have there though :)

Race face turbines, only way to go on a Kona. Has to be, some top kit on there, not tempted to run a set of Suss forks on it? If you want a better Saddle I have a Leather topped NOS WTB sst 2K with the Logo branded into to the top (not stitched)
