'97 Kona AA Mountain Shock is the base to this build. A nice lightweight frame built from Easton 7005 aluminum tubes. Bought this bike a few months ago with 27.2 seatpost stuck in a 27.0 hole, shot bottom bracket, broken shifters, frayed/rusted shift cables, mangled cable guide on top tube, and Mavic wheels replaced with the black steel rimmed wheels shown. Had started a build thread with SS BMX cruiser in mind. But so far have just removed the seat and seatpost, chain, crank, cable guides from the top tube, along with cables, shifters, and deraileurs. This is how it sits now. Except with the springs back in the fork. So a little taller in the front. I have accumulated a few parts: new bottom bracket, and BMX stem. And when it's all said and done, I'll be able to swap wheelsets and seat, along with stem and bars, in a matter of minutes, for a multi-purpose bike. For the MBBO, it'll be cast as a cafe racer of sorts.
