    Does anyone know where I could find a sticker kit for a 1992 Hoffman Condor?

    I've got a mate of mine wanting to revamp his vert bike but can't find a kit anywhere for it. Even if someone can get good clear picture of the set, that would be much appreciated!

    i had the sugar baby with taj forks

    before that the free agent bombardier which is a sugar baby replica got the alex triple wall's from this bike

    before that an redline rl440 running TUFF's they lasted until i started hucking 360's out of the big stepup in shep..... got some rims after that sun rims double walls if i remember.

    i've got a mongoose rouge now days. it's fun to ride nice and heavy the way i like it i can't ride the light weight things around today.

    i lived breathed and ate BMX for most of my life untill i got sick of peddling and found MX even now it doesn't take me long to get a couple of tricks back and can still huck a 3-0 out of a bowl or somethin....... good times hey

    Whoa... this thread brings back some memories. My friends and I were all heavily into BMX and vertical skating, we rode our bikes in the old school parks with heller vertical, and we rode 'em in empty backyard pools that were big enough. We even went on to trick out bigger bikes as vert-riding sleds... I had the finest Powerlite Cruiser ever seen on this planet, you can Google "Powerlite Cruiser" and see a few images, but none of 'em even comes close. Mine was black with white lettering, it had red Araya rims, stainless spokes, Bullseye hubs (also red), Specialized tires (back when that meant something), trick neck, bars, two-finger Haro levers, lightweight alloy cranks, and a bunch of other stuff I'm probably forgetting right now, after a couple o' stiff rum & cokes, LOL. Oh, yeah, it had a freewheel on it, can't possibly remember the ratio, it has been so long, but the bike was FAST. Every possible nut and bolt that could be upgraded to aircraft aluminum was swapped out, courtesy of some hands who raced MX and worked at North Island Naval Air Station. Sadly, the bike got stolen when some fine-looking girls came down from San Rafael, my friend and I had our minds on the gals instead of bike security, you understand. His bike got stolen too, but it wasn't anywhere near as trick, just a modified Schwinn Cruiser. Oh, well, ya just can't lock a bike like that Powerlite anywhere, it doesn't do any good, since locks are for honest people. I've had some cool bikes since, including some tricked-out tandems, but that Powerlite Cruiser was the ultimate poolriding and park-riding machine, as far as bigger bikes go. You could lift it with one finger, and this was in the early '80s... we had skated since the early '70s, but it took awhile to conceive and build that bike from the frame and forks up, using every bit of skating experience to select components. I still miss that bike sometimes, it was the cleanest pedal bike I ever had in my life. I hope the wanker who stole it got hit by a truck due to bad karma, LOL.

    That episode of "Nitro Circus" was killer, it was all about two hands attempting the world's first quadruple backflip on a BMX bike... each of those hands was tougher than a dollar steak, breaking ribs and whatnot during this lengthy project. The hand from NZ ultimately prevailed, pulling a quad flip on a huge ramp behind Travis Pastrana's house. Pretty cool show... now, which one of you Crusty Australian Demons O' Dirt will be first to pull a quad flip on a monkeybike??? LOL. Back to "Shark Week" as I kick it hard at the ol' hacienda, it's concert night in the park this evening, and the crowds will soon build, so I'll hold the fort as usual just to keep an eye on our property. WTF, I'm from California, therefore I trust nobody, LOL. Damn.

    Just picked up an 84 Hutch pro Racer, time for retro racing. Off to buy some Profile cranks and goodies today.
