what makes that thing go

I wonder how old Kona is they used to be head quartered in Bellingham Washington a couple hours from where I live.

I still have my '94 Kona Kula hardtail no diskbrakes. I love that bike, the frame is long, and short much like a BMX cruiser I used to do tons of jumping with it, more so then trail riding. I just hoped on it again last summer now that our oldest has started riding bikes. Man that little white leather Flite saddle sure did leave an impression on my fat ass.

If we had a bit more property I think I might make a nice lofty flat top, or two. I have to keep my kids fed, and pay the mortgage so I think I'd steer clear of the gaps.

Sensiblenick,
I have just spent the better part of the last two evenings reading this entire thread, and I have to say that you are truly an amazing builder. Yet again you slope guys make me very jealous and not happy that I live in an amazingly flat state.
Very impressive build and thank you for sharing this with us.

Is the house 90% finished yet? (No house ever seems to get beyond that point anyway) Hope you get the roof done before autumn sets in.

Nah. Vintage would be machining it from solid Paxolin.

Plane Tech, check out Pompano Beach Land fill for a slope you can fly on all 4 side's. I've personally sloped the berm that goes all the way around Lake Okeechobee. And then there's the condo's.

Maybe if it wasn't 300 miles away I would make the trek, but that is pushing it a little.
