1995 Homeless The Mack 2

1995 Homeless The Mack 2

The second version of The Mack

Homeless took its production in-house to Austin in the mid nineties and produced a new version of The Mack. It was stronger, and heavier like most of the bikes from this era, and curiously it's shorter than the original.
I picked this one up almost by accident; it was advertised as a Hoffman frame on ebay UK, I guess the young guy I bought it from thought the 'H' cut into the end of the top tube signified Mat's company. When Ryan Partridge came up with the right forks (1/4" laser cut drop outs) it was time to build this Mack survivor-style.

Wow. Very nice.  I remember those Peregrine bars--my flatland buddy had them.

And Prince Albert cranks! cool

I had those Araya Super 7x rims as well. They were very popular for wheel builds at TREND in Austin. Almost everyone seemed to have had them.
