Here’s some pics of my Hot and a bit of a back story. I’m the original owner and bike was factory ordered and I believe maybe a 96? Black with yellow decals 853 tubing but no oval down tube and full xtr. I broke the frame and was replaced with a 98 frame with the flames. At the time according to kona this was the last hot frame they had. Here a pic of the original bike and one of how it sits now.
