I could be wrong but I thought the hornet racer was a bike made by Hyper

Re: Can anyone tell me what this is i kinda like it.

Was checking around don't know how old that bike is but there were two Hyper companies one is Hyper and one is Hyper brand Mike Spinner now rides for them should bring some good press and knowledge to their company they mostly make race bikes probaly looking to branch out. I think they are Canadian sounds like people like their bikes I'd buy it if I had the cash to.
wwwhyperbicycles.com their site with their new line

Re: Can anyone tell me what this is i kinda like it.

I started the second Hyper. I left the company in 94 but dont remember Hyper ever making a bike like that after I left.
Not saying its not a Hyper Hornet. I don't remember them offering a model that was all funky like that, but it could be. Im just saying Im guessing its not.
When I left we only sold the Metro (before that the HPR-20). Then they did the FS20 and then the Boxster. I saw a funky freestyle bike once but it was like walgoose, I was shocked it had a Hyper logo on it. So maybe they did some Walmart race bikes also. I dunno.

Yea I've been digging around was thinking maybe they got the model wrong but there are no Hyper bikes that look like that. Not sure what it could be. Thanks for the input Racer. I still want to find a Hyper bike they look pretty nice ahead of their time even.

Yeah that Hornet (good call) looks just like the Metro with cantis.
That Hyper logo is basically the one I designed so I'm guessing the Hornet was a complete bike or the replacement to the Metro. So mid/late 90s?

Re: Can anyone tell me what this is i kinda like it.

Well heres the deal I e-mailed the guy and this is what he said

-i bought it from a guy that was making them out of his garage 8 years ago it needs a new paint job it was origanly yellow with the hornet logos

So I'm part wrong this bike is not a Hyper but Hyper did make a Hornet so this bike is a rare bike indeeed it seems homemade not bad for homemade might call myself to check it out see the welds and such

It's not a Hyper, but Hyper made a bike called a Hornet so that's what I'll call it even though I can plainly see that's not what this is...

Re: Can anyone tell me what this is i kinda like it.

Well gaijin I was trying to help some one out with some info I'm not calling it a hyper hornet I'm just saying hyper did make a hornet bike. This bike is a Hornet racer made by a guy who built bikes in his garage.

Re: Can anyone tell me what this is i kinda like it.

Ok, I'm a little late on this subject but I just picked up this NOS 1996 Hyper Hornet Pro frame from a buddy the other day.

Can't find any more info on it though. Anybody have any more info?
