I remember seeing my first Hoffman Condor around 1994 or 95 at Sk8 Underground in Moreno Valley, CA (ridden by Eric Clark who worked there). I've loved them ever since and have been on a quest to build a respectable collection of Hoffman's from all years. This one popped up on Craigslist last year and I had to have it because of the color. I bought this exact same model in 18" for my oldest son years ago and always wanted one for myself. I swapped a few of the stock parts to give it a personal touch and love the way it rides. One of my favorites for sure.
