The Great Hoffman Bike Build Up

Hoffman Bikes was started in late 1991 with the first Condor rolling out in the Summer of 1992.  Mat, his friends and his company have made history these past twenty years.  The 2012 product line includes the new old Condor replica that we've all seen here on BMXMuseum.com.  Show your love for Hoffman's and build up a new ride or save an old one.

This build up will run concurrently with calismooth's 2012 BMX Museum Spring Build Off.  Your entries here are also welcome (and encouraged) there.  Should you enter both please read the rules for each as they are not the same.  Calismoooth and I fully support both of these running at the same time - no drama allowed. wink

Rules
This build up will run until Spring 2012 and consist of three forum posts in Catchall of BMX Fun.  This announcement and comments thread, a submission thread (open for two weeks) and the voting thread (open for one week).

1. Open to all museum members registered on or before 11:59 PM PST Saturday, March 10th, 2012
2. Open to Hoffman brand bicycles, any year, any model.  The spirit of this build up is to start from little or nothing and build a new bike.  No bikes will be disqualified if you've shared them before, however, the voters will determine where your bike ranks (fair enough?).
3. You may enter multiple bikes but only one may win 1st, 2nd or 3rd - the bike with the most votes gets counted
4. Entry deadline: none - all may build, all may enter right up to the submission deadline
    Note: a before picture is not required for this build up
5. Submissions: Saturday, February 25th through 11:59 PM PST Saturday, March 10th 2012 (a two week window)
   - Post between one and four pictures of your entry in the submissions post
     Note: if you post more than four your fifth and subsequent pictures will be removed
   - Submission post: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=400686
6. Voting: Sunday, March 11th through 11:59 PM PDT Sunday, March 18th, 2012 (a one week window)
   - All museum members registered before March 11th, 2012 may vote once (whether or not entered in this build up)
   - voters will cast three votes in no particular order - each vote will count as one point
   - No voting for your own bike
   - Voting post: URL will be added here on March 11th
7. Results will be posted in the voting thread by Monday, March 19th, 2012.

Prizes provided by Hoffman Bikes and Sidewall Action Sports
- 1st place: bars/stem
- 2nd place: forks
- 3rd place: seat/post

   Plus, all 3 places will get:
   grips & bar ends
   t-shirt
   Trilogy DVD
   stickers

Add your comments and progress pictures to this post starting now.  Ride to live!

Re: The Great Hoffman Bike Build Up

Great contest but unfortunatly I just finished my 95 Condor after almost a year of hunting for parts and pieces. Would it count if I tear it apart and put it back together again. LOL

Re: The Great Hoffman Bike Build Up

I've got two older ones now and the retro Condor on my Christmas list.  Lottery would be nice cause going to work is really getting in the way of bike building.

Just arrived today, thanks for the heads up on the discount code Kelly.

As of 12/22 all parts are in the house.  Now just need some time to build it up.

NICE!  I kept wondering after the ride if you pulled the trigger.  I should have one soon, I hope.  Guess I'll be going chrome since you went Postal. lol

Re: The Great Hoffman Bike Build Up

I hate that I finished my Big Daddy earlier this year. Would it count if I took pictures of me swapping the headset and included the original pics from the rest of the build?
