Okay, a bit of a fun one this...a 1999 Hoffman George with parts far too good (and incorrect!) for it's own sake on...it's now dismantled, but will be built back up again with just silver and black parts at some point.

Here is my 1992 SE-made first batch Hoffman Condor in factory complete spec. It won the Mid-School Best in Show and the People's Choice at MK07, which I was humbled by...but the crowning moment was presenting it to Mat Hoffman in my hotel room in Germany at the Masters this year.

A big thanks to Mat for spending so much time with us that morning (and the following morning), I don't know who was more surprised; me for having Mat Hoffman in my hotel room, or Mat as he couldn't believe that I had spent so much time and effort in restoring the bike! He was speechless and said the bike was 'perfect, man', but he still couldn't believe what 'crap' bits they had to put on them to get them out to market!

He filled in so many gaps for me; about how he designed the stickers one afternoon on a rented Mac and everyone called him the 'Oondor', to the full production details, to why they introduced the Patriot bar so soon after the Scud bar was released.

Top top man - the only true legend of our sport.



So, here it is a full factory spec first batch 1992 Condor, complete with upgraded first gen Patriot bars. The frame is a survivor and everything else is NOS and as per the published spec (sheet below), including the VPX pedals, sprocket pocket and high pressure Chen Shing tyres. This really was a difficult build and is my ultimate Hoffman.

A few thank's first (it's like the fooking oscars, so make sure you're sitting down):

Alex (S&MAlex) - For persuading his friend Mack to part with his Condor F&F. This would not have been possible without you and Mack - thank you so much. Also, when all the avenues had dried up, thank you for finding the only NOS part in your shed...an Odyssey Sprocket Pocket! Oh, and the stem and an original knurled AD990! Man, you helped so much.

Mark (YGT) - For parting with a NOS set of Mk1 Patriot bars and a wonderful Hoffman Micky post, a selfless act even at the expense of my 93 Condor!

Ross (Tricknuts) - For buying me a set of Tech 77 FS levers in the USA and shipping them over. Top fella.

Pete (Quadrophenia) - For providing the front brake and for helping me realise the dream with Hoffman in Germany. - you da man.

Bodamus - For the tip off on the possible location of some Odyssey VPX pedals, the lead led to Singapore and two pairs of NOS ones! Thanks mate.

Geoff Cain - For the sensitive metal work one cold evening in Oxford. You da man.

Bren Gunn - For supplying the sticker set for me to re-draw.

Fuzzynod - for igniting the touch paper by buying me Mat Hoffman's book.

Hoffman - for being an inspiration for every BMX'er and saving the sport.


The rest of the parts came from around the world on ebay and other BMX forums.





1992 Catalogue










































Luckily we and Pete had also taken Fuzzynods Condor to Germany too, so we were able to show Mat both bikes - so he had one of each colour! Not bad considering we only know of 3 remaining first batch Condors and two of them were in front of him. Naturally, he signed it too - just such a shame Mark couldn't be there to see it happen.
