Condor opinion

I originally was trying to do a copy of Mat's 95 X games bike with the chrome bike and black Love Handles.

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a233/jc1789/Mobile%20Uploads/downsized_1017011042a.jpg

Then I got lucky and scored some impossible to find Patriot bars this past weekend.

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a233/jc1789/Mobile%20Uploads/2011-12-05_122708-1.jpg


my question is which bars do you guys think I should run?

Re: Condor opinion

Wish I still had the 93 I sold a few years ago. Dumbest thing let go of to date. Tried to buy it back but owner not interested in selling. Can't say that I blame him.

I've been eyeballing another 95 Condor for a while but just haven't had the extra cash to pick it up. I think if i have to cast a vote I like the Patriots better the more I look at it. That and I have been looking for some Patriots for a long time and I FINALLY have some.

yeah I have always love Condors and have been a huge Mat Hoffman fan since I met him at a Haro show back in 88. Trying to work out a deal for another one.

the question is, which bars do you like the best? keep whichever set on the condor that you like the most, theres not too many condors with patriot bars out there.

I think that is what I'm going to do. Even though my loves with the removable grip tubes are rare, The later Loves are pretty common. And like  you say you don't see many legit Patriot bars floating around. Alot of them are Bully bars. I just got lucky and my sticker doesn't have a single scratch on it.

So I think the patriots are her to stay. Just need to find something to put the loves on now.big_smile

i'm guilty of using bully bars on a condor, I couldn't find any patriots that were less then $200 so I just got some bullies instead for a fraction of the price. lol I don't think i've ever seen a 95 condor built up with patriot bars so seeing them on yours is a welcome change plus the decal on your bars is hilarious. you could always get a different frame at some point to put the love handles on.

Re: Condor opinion

Keep. The patriots they look better, feel better and are 1000 rarer than the loves. If anybody has to have love handles I've got a box of the most rare versions just drop me a pm smile
