Anyone able to pinpoint the year of this Kona frame? It has an aftermarket paintjob and I want to make sure that it truly is a Kona and would like to get a good idea of the year. Anyone know if this had a full carbon fork or not?

It's from September 2008, probably made during the second week, Thursday most likely but maybe early Friday.

It looks like a kona jake the snake ( same welds as the ones i have owned in the past)

the fork is from 2007/6 or earlier and is steel i think

my guess it is from 2002-2005

These are some of the Jakes from 2002-2005
