    1988 Marin Bear Valley

    Got the cables on and done a basic set up, i'm well chuffed with it if i do say so myself 😁 There's a still a few things to do with it before it's finished, like adding toeclips and touching up that paint loss which is really the only bad bit to the paint. Also fine tune all the gears and the...

    Wanted Wheels:Shimano Deore ll black hubs on black rims. 7speed.

    I've got an interesting Kona build coming up and have decided on the wheels to start the build off. I'm after a set of the black version of the Shimano Deore ll hubs with the gold label laced to black rims, but open to silver rims possibly. Has anyone got any they'd like to part with. Cheers.

    Unusual Kona

    Cheers Pip i love info like this. So it's definitely a very early Cindercone then, i wonder if it was an early pre production bike like crossing over from the Cascade to Kona what Joe Murray done. I've seen a Fire Mountain and Lavadome Cascade not sure if there was a Cindercone Cascade. Or maybe...

    Unusual Kona

    Size wise it's a 19" frame. Definitely going to leave the stickers off that's the way it came out the factory and build it up. I'll do a build thread of it because it's a rare Kona in its own right and deserves to be giving a new lease of life.
