1996 Hoffman The Egg

The Egg

This is how I bought the bike. I didnt pick the frame up when I bought it because it was about 4hrs away so a mate picked it up for me. A couple of months ago at a local bmx swap meet the fella I bought it off recognized the bike and introduced himself. Was good to know the history of it.
I haven't put too much money into it as it was meant to be a budget bike when it was made and Im pretty happy with how it has turned out, probably one of my favourite bikes I have.

The bars are a generic copy bar. I dont know who made them but they suit the bike well. I need to change out the levers . Every time I look at the bike they are the first thing I see. I have also installed a Pitbull rear brake which suits it much better.

That is the cleanest Egg I have ever seen. Great build. You don't see them very often -- most of them were thrashed and broken! Great work!

Wow this one takes me back smile


Whoa whoa whoa, Miss Lippy! The part of the story I don't like is that the little boy gave up looking for Happy after an hour! He didn't put posters up or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited! That little boy's gotta think 'You got a pet. You got a responsibility!' If your dog is lost you don't look for an hour then call it quits! You get your ass out there and you find that fu*king dog!!! (Billy Madison)

Re: 1996 Hoffman The Egg

Thanks for the positive comments. Its probably my favorite bike I have built up atm. Mostly due to the history of the model within the HB line-up and its less common than the SE Condor I have. For such a budget bile Im pretty stoked on it. Will update the pics with how its currently set-up with the Pitbull rear brake.
