1997 Hoffman Taj

97 Hoffman Taj

This bike was built up as close as possible to how I rode one bitd

The grind disk is Haro. Its the same one I rode with bitd. I did machine the OD down until it was only a couple of mm's higher than the chain height.

The profile cranks and pedals are also the originals I rode with. The chrome has started flaking on the cranks but they are still in good condition. The pedals, unsealed version, still spin as good as the day I bought them.

The Haro seat is the same model I ran. I switched tyres a little back then so these Comp3 copies will do for now http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj289/slimo1/BMX/3_zps8khcurnf.jpg

Looks awesome Leon.

It's a step back in time seeing that bike, makes me remember the sessions at Corio, Nth Shore and Ponds

Cheers Gordo, pretty keen to get this bike out a bit more often now. Tried riding the new local park a week or so ago but those tyres are a bit slippy on the new concrete with the anti-graffiti coating. Will swap them out with a ramp tyre and see how it goes then.

Will have to catch up for a Corio session soon.
