Mat Hoffman Toadstool tribute

I bought this sweet Hoffman tribute from Dan, OG'89 here on the museum a while back. Me and my buddy Norb (Mungus) took a quick road trip from Pittsburgh to Niagara Falls, NY to pick it up. Dan laid the groundwork for this build and I changed a few things up to match the way Mat had it BITD. The bike as Dan built it can be seen here: http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/se_racing/67930 Here is the breakdown from Dan's original build: Frame: 1986-87 SE PK Ripper, bought from ebay. S/N 9-1895.
