1980 Mongoose Kos Kruiser Team 26
Super rare candy team KOS set up 80's style
Ive wanted another KOS since Bret sold my chrome 1980 OG survivour. This one was found in an attic by a guy who sold it complete to me. I changed a few parts and got my badass low production cruiser.

"27: From Chuck Whitcomb: What was the paint/candy finish on the Team Goose frames during the 70's? What method was used to create the anodized look of the burgundy and blue Team frames.
Skip: The candy look was originally transparent powder coat over chrome plating."
From the Skip Hess Interview. I would imagine this was also used for the early 80"s Mongoose stuff as well.
There have been a FEW Kos's in this finish,both Red and Blue. There was one at the 26" meet in Texas that someone bought. Based on pics posted somewhere.
