Kona humuhumu-nukunuku-apua'a

Here is my new Kona humuhumu-nukunuku-apua'a. I was going to build a klunker out of my 57 schwinn but instead I ended up picking up this bike. I've wanted one for a while and the time and price were right so I got it. I've swapped the tires to some schwalbe rocket ron's (obviously) and will be swapping to a thomson post wtb saddle, and either my white industries eno or kooka razor crank. Once I have the gearing where I want it I'll be using it in a couple of races just for the heck of it.
