1980 Mongoose Moosegoose
This is my Moose, I got it when I was nine years old for christmas in 1980. My whole life then revolved around bike riding, I was always taller than the other kids and I think I had already gone through 3 bikes before this one. I remember my old man saying lets see if he can break this one, well he was right, I couldn't break it. I rode the hell out of this thing until I was 17 and got my first car. I could never part with it, so I have dragged it around for the last 20 years, it ended up being stored at my factory for the last 15 years or so where it gathered dust and quietly deteriorated.
Every kid I ever came across wanted to know what sort of bike it was, I would tell them it was a Moosegoose and they would always say "don't ya mean a Mongoose", they would then tell me that there was no such thing, even though I was sitting on it right in front of them. I never saw another moose anywhere, closest thing I ever saw was an older kid turned up at the local track with a Kos Kruiser.
