1997 Hoffman Condor

found this on ebay I cant believe the condition of the frame itself no rust whatsoever. Everything is straight hardly any marks at all!! always wanted one of these with this sticker set strange how its ended up with 94decals rather than the 96/7 classic decals that were a copy of this set!!   
The forks on the other hand although mostly rust free (peg bosses) weren't in perfect condition. A previous owner had done some serioulsy heavy landings to flat resulting in the forks being bent forwards by about 20 degrees!!! at first i was at a loss what to do with them but luckily i have since managed to straighten them to point where its unoticable its a shame they needed any work but im glad the frameset now looks how it should. Now i need to source the parts and build this hefty beast up!!

I really should of taken a photo beforehand they were so bad!!!   Luckily all the dropouts and everything were still straight and unused so just took a while getting the legs and steerer straight again cant believe how they look now you'd never know except for some small marks on the front of the legs, frames mint tho and thats the bit i was really happy about big_smile
