1996 Hoffman Condor

NOS FRAME AND FORKS FROM A MUSEUM MEMBER -- CUSTOM BUILD

Mat Hoffman and Hoffman Bikes weren’t around during my first BMX obsession in the 80s but I always kept a tab on the BMX scene and my a mid-school Hoffman in the mid 90s was out because of my need to start a career. I always wanted two bikes -- an EK Limited Edition and a Condor. Flash forward 20-or so years and here I am again.
DK Mini-Stem, Primo Hula Hoops laced to GT Mowhawk hubs, new school polished Evo II brakes.
The main point of difference I went for versus most other builds like mine was the sprocket. I took a non era-correct HB 'Rise Above' sprocket and had it stripped, polished and cleared and I think it looks awesome.
Hope you like it.

Thanks man. Yeah the sprocket turned out sweet. I love this bike even more because of it.
