1980 Mongoose Kos Kruiser
One of the rarer KOS KRUISER's with all original finish, decals and original finish parts.
Detailed parts list and description coming soon. Stay tuned.
The story on this KOS goes like this....
I have always wanted a KOS KRUISER. When i was younger i was too small to ride one but always loved the way they looked. My buddy's dad always road his around at the track.
-5/15/12: 2:08 P.M. The KOS arrived via UPS. Thanks to Curtis. (CurtiswithaC) I finally found what i was looking for. An early made KOS KRUISER with all original finish chrome and decals. It even still has the original chromoly tubing sticker on the top tube as well as the original bike shop sticker where it was purchased from, ORANGE CYCLE WORKS, ORLAND0. As well as the beautiful survivor finish frame and fork i received from Curtis, i also got a very nice set of ukai wheels laced to a rear bendix coaster and a front Shimano hub. As well as some nice original finish Shimano 600 cranks, Mongoose seat post, Mongoose double clamp stem and a Mongoose seat clamp.
I made a build thread which i will post a link of below. Once this baby arrived, it was time to get started on the parts hunt. I first began to look for some original finish KOS KRUISER bars. It took about three months but Scraplord stepped up to the plate with a near perfect mint set uf maurice stamped KOS bars. Then I slowly started piecing it together Goose bit by Goose bit. Og goose grips from (MarvinGarden), OG finish Mongoose stamped B/B from (Ol'phart), OG finish Mongoose stamped headset from (Bmx-Classics), NOS Winners Choice tires from (BIGGM), mint finish blue rat taps from (JOE BUFFARDI). Thanks a bunch for all your help guys. Without you all, I could not have completed my build.
