    New question here. Kona Hot Year ID, P2 Fork Question (and WTB)

    First time poster here. I just picked up a Teesdale Kona Hot frame (with that beautifl fluted downtube) on my local CL that came with a 1x1 fork. It's all been repainted, so I'm having a hard time nailing down the year. The bottom shell is stamped TET, so I know it's a Teesdale frame (91-95 I believe). I also tracked down a picture from the previous seller of the frame prior to being repainted, and based on the decals I THINK it's a 1994, though I'm hoping someone here can verify. The frame was cracked at the downtube near the head tube and a builder down in Austin used a gusset to repair/re-inforce that joint. I'm hoping the repair won't affect the ride quality of the bike.

    That said, I'm looking to get a canti-only P2 fork for it rather than use the 1x1 fork it came with. I think the A-C length I'm looking for would be 410, but again, hoping someone can help me verify. If I'm correct on that, does anyone have (or know where I can find) a 1 1/8" Kona P2 Triple Butted fork with a 410 A-C?

    I'm waiting on delivery of a SS Paul 26" wheelset in the next few days which will turn this into a great, light bike for me to ride at the local MTB park with my kid. Can't wait!

    Check in the Vintage Retro Classic forum also. There's a couple hoarders in there that might have what you need.

    I might have what you are looking for. I have a Project Two fork from a '94 Kona Lava Dome. I am the original owner of the bike. Its set up for canti brakes. I've been planning on throwing it up on eBay this week. But still need to take good photos, and get the exact measurements.
