Konas in Boston

In a bit of a bind here. I'm trying to find a 2005 Kona Smoke in the Boston area, an 18". Having test ridden a number of bikes, it feels like this would be the right one, but I can't get the '06 because it's out of my (rather the payer, my dad's) price range. Unfortunately, there seem to be very, very few Boston area Kona dealers -- by 'area' I mean within, say, 40 miles of Newton. And they all only have 2006, or their '05's are too small.

Any help?

I'm surprised there aren't more dealers here. I test rode a few Kona's at the cyclorama that was in town a few months ago and really liked the Jake the Snake. I can't remember which bike store it was.

I don't see anything on Craig's list or eBay right now. They may be your best bet.
