    Please Help date this Kona Jake the Snake

    This popped up on CL a couple times in the last two weeks, I'm sorta in the market so I've contacted the seller, but I can't seem to date the bike yet. It is overpriced as advertised, so I'm looking for bargining position. Can someone offer their guess on a manufacture year for this bike, as I can't seem to find a pic on the Kona Website. Would between $300 and $350 be a reasonable offer?
    Also if anyone can offer suggestions on what I should look for in a used bike, atleast to make sure the bike is in decent shape, I'd appreciate the advice.

    Color scheme looks like a 2002 Jake.
