SOLD: 1992 Kona Lavadome

Iconic 18″ Kona steel XC mountain bike, lovingly rebuilt to excellent condition in the DRC workshop.  At the Lavadome’s heart is of course the legendary sloping top tube Joe Murray designed double butted cro-mo frame, Project Two fork and Velocity stem.  The Kona rolls on period correct upgraded wheels shod with puncture resistant Schwalbe hybrid tyres.  The drivetrain and brakes are also sympathetically upgraded, with new consumables and decent finishing kit.  A highly usable and collectible classic that’s great fun to ride!
