One of the original, early Side hacks built by Gork, Editor of BMX-Action magazine. Never was quite sure of frame choice, it is either a Free Agent or possibly a WhiteBear...Top tube length 'is 21" long. Hack frame was built/welded by Gork's brother. Who later starting making the Patriot Sidehacks, out of Sacramento, Ca.....Top notch Hack, has seen hard duty, not had any problems. After it was aquired, it got a full weld inspection, no cracking at all. And then full Ratfink Green powder job, which is on all parts green, including rims, cranks, bars, forks, etc...See photo's.

I bought this earlier this year from the original owner. It was in great shape, just a bit dirty and needed some cleaning up. Basically it sits exactly as i got it, with the exception of the gold anno bell I added. I'm the 2nd owner and it's a pretty fun bike to ride with my wife.
