1997 Hoffman Flash

1997 Hoffman Flash

80s-Race-inspired Hoffman Flash RELUCTANTLY SOLD

I'll admit, I've never really been into BMX race bikes but, hey, it's a Hoffman race bike! - so this Flash was a dead cert pick-up when it was made available by a great member on OzBMX here in Australia.

As an 80s old-school BMX-kid who discovered mid-school - and Mat Hoffman - as an adult, I really wanted to do something a little different with it, so I went ... well ... a bit '80s' on it ... just a little bit ...
Not one for the mid-school purists but I really like it. Thanks for looking.
