That's a beast. No idea how much they're worth these days, I'd say it's more like a 1994 to 1996 frame, not 90 to 92 though. I remember them from when I first started to ride BMX proper, and 1992 was before my time.

the HB stamp in the gusset identifys this as a Taiwan made frame

not sure exactly when production shifted to the far east. 95 i think?
a Taiwan frame is actually probably better made than a USA made Hoffman so although considered less desirable than a ramp room made frame is probably better as a rider :!:

straighter with neater welds etc :wink:

Adam is right on this one, I had a 92 frame that was SE made and the coaster brake anchor point was below the chainstay.

Definately looks around the 95/96 era

I seem to remember that frame being out the same time as that nice baby blue Taj that HB did

Good project....super pros, profiles and 44/16 gearing :D
