    Memories. Circa 1993

    I haven't seen one of these in years. A 1993 Giant Iguana. I built about a few hundred of these from 1992-1994 for Bike City.

    Its on Craigs. I am tempted....

    Re: Memories. Circa 1993

    Bought this new with paper route money when I was 14, 1994. I ride it at least once a week. Still a great bike.



    I bought it from Lee from the shop on San Mateo north of menaul.

    My (I think) '93 Kona Hahanna, I think this was my 3rd mountain bike, purchased in Flagstaff when I worked in the Grand Canyon. We were pretty much renegade riders, and would seriously be frowned upon today.



    The Hahanna in the back I purchased on ebay when I lived in Ohio, as a back up to the original. For some reason, it ended up cracking, and had to get it welded...



    (Manitou 2, Scott Cam rear brakes, Tioga Tomac cranks - Revolvers? Zoom 120mm stem and 9mile tall seat post. And Dart/Smoke combo).

    Nice weld repair on the Hahanna. My Uncle used to repair my cracked chro-moly frames much the same way. Good times. The Manitou shocks were first class.

    It's possible. If you by chance still have the owners manual and such, Wally Senior used to have us initial the literature next to the serial number. My tag would have been BMP, BP or just plain Bobby. Wally Senior ran a good store. He tried to stay in the higher end of bikes. When he retired and Wally Junior took over the store stock went down a few levels and has remained there. It's been rather disappointing since.

    Loved that shock... Choppered it and bent it back countless times!
