1994? Kona Cinder Cone

Hey, I posted this up in Classic & Vintage, but they felt it wasn't classic or vintage enough and told me to come here for info, so here you go:

Just got this from CL, and the lady said it was bought new in '94.

Can anyone tell me specifics on where this stood in Kona's lineup, and anything more on the quality of the tubing/bike? I can't find any specs/catalogs online. Looks to be pure stock.

Kona Cinder Cone, designed by Joe Murray, olive green color. Cable routing is top tube for the rear brake, and downtube for the shifters.
Kona MTB chromoly double-butted tubing.
Project Two fork, designed by Joe Murray
26x2.2 Equilibrium tires, rims have lost their stickers, Suntour HC hubs
Kona 165 bars, Kona Avocet saddle.
Suntour XC LTD canti brakes, cranks and derailleurs.
7 gears back, 3 front. BB has an odd dust sleeve over the crank spindles, too.

The derailleurs are pretty neat--a mix of friction and trigger shift.

well they still make the cinder cone, it is an xc bike, 2nd from the top of the line out of the four in the series. they now use aluminum on the frames instead of chromoly. that is about all i can say.
