    Help ID an old(er) Kona?

    Howdy!

    I'm trying to help a buddy of mine fix up an older Kona frame. A friend gave him this frame last year, and we built it up into a pretty decent bike. However, he's thinking pivot bearing kit and new shock this year. The problem is, we don't know exactly which bike it is. We're thinking 2001 or 2002 Stinky. If anybody can help ID this frame, it would be such a huge help. I imagine once we've got the frame ID'd, it should be easy to find what shock to use, etc. Thanks in advance!! - Alex in Bozeman, MT

    2004 Coiler maybe? 2005 rocker arms are longer than this bike, at least in the photos I've found.
