My New (old) Kona Process '312P'

Kona Process 312P aka 134DL (2016 model).
Kona Process 312P aka 134DL (2016 model). Kona Process 312P aka 134DL (2016 model). Took a Kona logo from a T-shirt and put it into a Ferrari-esque shield, minus the Italian colours on top. Main electric shut off sticker, always on a race car, and racing number 11, my lucky number. The Pike fork needed new decals, so I took the original logo from Koni shocks, the original suspension company for Ferrari during the 60s, and turned it into a new Pike sticker. A Tow sticker to point out where to tow when broke down... Shimano Zee brakes and DMR Deathgrips Race. Super adjustable Cane Creek DROPT dopper post lever. Hope Tech Enduro wheels and Michelin Wild Enduro 2.6 front tyre. Golden Kona logos ressemble the gold of the magnesium alloy wheels of the Ferrari racers of the 60s. Absolute Black oval Chainring, Race Face Aeffect cranks, Onza Ibex 2.4 rear tire, Nukeproof Horizon pedals, One Up chainguide. Custom made chain protector. Made of 3M mastic tape. Resembles the matte black engine cover of the Ferrari. Close up of the golden Sasquatch Kona logo. Ferrari 312P in the paddock at Le Mans Classic 2012.

Additional Info What started as a service job for my 134DL ended up in a complete overhaul for the bike (thx Corona!) I completely disassembled the bike, got it powder coated and started the build up with most of the old parts and some new. I wanted to bring an ode to my favourite race car prototype of all time: the Ferrari 312P. Only three were made, only one is still in existence. I was lucky to see it up close in the paddock at Le Mans Classic and hear it race (that V12 sound....uhmngg).
