hoffman falsh usa made....

Are these bikes desireable? You dont see many 96 us made ones, they look like an awesome bike. I keep seeing the 97 thats been listed on here very cheap and it seems like it will never sell!

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

I didn't know they ever made a USA Flash... thought just the Big daddys, Condors and Taj's were US made... well, at least up till late 96/early 97.

I had a helluva time trying to sell my Flash XL on here... somebody did tell me there was a US made version of it that sells for a lot more but I never did more research into it.

US made Flash = 990 mounts? my brother had a 990 mount Flash with oval tubing and I think it was the first style.

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

990s or Vs? I had one with 990 mounts years ago. It was sweet. I had it set up as a street/park machine Dave Young style.

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

yes, 990s= us made. 96 only.  yes they are desireable, but it seems they are held back a little because of lack of decals/og/scans etc and it makes it impossible to build one looking the way it should.

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

The Flash with the 990's was an amazing bike.  When they switched to v brakes the frame changed somehow and they didn't ride the same.  It's always cool to have an old bike but so much better when it is an Awesome old bike.


ride your bike until it breaks.

Lol yours was the one I was reffering to lol. It was a great deal and seemed like it was never going to sell.

In one of your posts I noticed somebady saying to bad it wasnt a us made 96 so it aroused my curiousity to see what a 96 would bring.

I'm trying my best to get some custom decals made with the help of another awesome member on here. Here is a little teaser of the downtube decal and the bike I will be restoring. I have some NOS Hoffman Jumping bars, chrome profiles to go on it and some other various Hoffman goodies. Any recommendations on the some parts to put on it would be cool.

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

Does anyone have an idea of the typical parts for the 96 flash? I think it came as frame and fork and bars only.


Looking for 92 - 95 condor f/f or complete, Max or Mini Light bars, Patriot Bars, Low Drag bars, Love Handles.

Re: hoffman falsh usa made....

correct, you could only buy the us version (990 mounts) as a frame fork stem bars kit. it was like 220 bucks off dans comp. i had a red one. the bars were awesome. i have since bought two of the v mount taiwan frames. junk, bad welds. one had a big piece of slag on the weld near the wishbone chain stays and it broke off therefore creating a crack in the frame. and literally just a piece missing from the weld
