1998 Kona Ku - Pipmeister

I must admit I hadn't heard of the Ku before I found retrobike.
It's very 😎 look forward to seeing this built up into a great bike
 
Fork choices…98 Marzocchi Z2s, 02 Marzocchi 80 X-Flys or 02ish Manitou SuperBlack

I like the look of the Manitou with it's black crown, but is it a bit too long for the frame?

Possibly…ignore the stem and bars, just some spares kicking about (from my ‘98 Kilauea) and front wheel is lifted about an inch - need to get a bigger bench :)

Will have a play with the Z2s next...

At the risk of being rude the real answer for me is none of these. It's a very rare and special bike and deserves a pretty special fork. Definitely run one of these to get it going but keep an eye out for something that really sings
