That is one SWEET Kos.
What are you going to do with all those red Winner Circle tires?

Killer KOS man. The chrome looks great. Nice original color scheme(with of course, your subtle gold/red tweaks). I was 14 years old in 81'. I rode a Red Line MX 2. My dad bought one brand new KOS from the local bike shop for like $250 or something. He never rode it and he sold it. Wish we still had it. Yours brings back fond memories. Very Nice Bro.cool

Thanks man... I bet that Kos was rather minty when he sold it. 

I was really happy how the color scheme worked out on this one.  I was a little worried the gold wouldn't work with all the red, but I couldn't be happier.

Those are you old hoops on my Kos.
