So then in the spirit of karma you could end up with this little lot.

Kona Cinder Cone / Lava Dome 1996 mid-season (we think) re-sprayed white, 19" with terminal seat-tube crack. Serious comment: you can't ride this in it's current state. If you do you'll end up with a pole up your arse and a trip to A&E.
1 pair of CM P2 forks of the same era re-sprayed white.
1 pair of used ODI Yeti white lock-on grips.
1 1997 Tahoma Some 4 stem (not pictured)
1 pair of well used could do with a service but perfectly usable modern Shimano XT SPD's
A pair of wheels from a 1997 Explosif: Front, Javva the Hub (with a missing cone bit) on Mavic 220 rims, DT spokes. Rear, XT on Mavic 220 rims, DT spokes, rear bearings need replacing. Rims are well used but could probably last for a season.
1 Selle Italia Triax saddle (from a 97 Hahanna), those marks are from some autosol and will be removed.
1 1996 Kona Decal set
A pair of used 97 Scratch and Sniff tyres (not pictured)

Some might say it's a pile of crap. Some might say it's got the basis of a long term project. Some might say use the frame as wall art / sell it to Bub's from The Wire / make a hack-pub bike.

Either way, this lot is free to go to a good home. This is a pick-up / meet in London or near to BR1 deal only so no shipping.

All you need to do to claim this lot is add a "I'm in!" message to this thread by close of play this Friday, 27/09/13.

Tales of why you deserve this lot more than the next man are welcome but won't increase your chances since I'll take all the names pick one from random (old skool write your names down on paper get the other half to pick from a hat type style).

Currently in the ever so slightly stale beanie are:

Swannymere
Ellist
Unklegsif
B3
Danwithaplan
Killer Steve
Mynchiboy
Teflonshoey
Kona Hed
The Grouch
Andyz
Bobcatmax
Dan Singh
Markusdave
Toomanyframes

That'll take some epic fixing by the way - new seat tube needed!

Sadly work now ties me up for next few weeks so chance of getting to pick-up is slim,

However great karma bundle :D may the gods of karma bless you for this gesture.

:lol:

Set your stall out early - it's this way or no way.

(Ensuring things are cleaned up afterwards / new shoes, handbags, etc are presented every now and then as bribes helps).
