    Name that bike?

    Howdy!

    A friend of mine had a beat-to-heck old Kona given to him. It had previously been painted, and all the components were either damaged or rusted. We stripped everything off, had the frame blasted, painted it, and built the thing up with a mix of my old parts and some nice new ones.

    The problem is that it's creaking now and most likely is in dire need of a pivot bearing kit. I know where to order the kits, but we're not 100% what Kona frame it is. Anybody want to help identify?

    It doesn't have a serial number somewhere?

    Looks like a Kona Stinky, but I'm no expert on Konas.

    Looking closer, the stinky rocker has 3 cut-outs, more matching the OP's bike than the coiler.
