1987 Mongoose Decade

2012 Rattlecan Buildoff Winner *Since Sold*

This bike originally belonged to a close friend of mines older sister, it had been barely ridden, but it sat in their garage for 24 years, so it had layers of overspray on it, so it was a perfect candidate for a fun resto project.  As an artist, the rattlecan buildoff was something that I definitely wanted to take part in.   This build was also done on a budget, I can't remember the exact number, but I know I didn't spend more than $225 on this bike all said and done.  Thanks to all that helped organize and then re-organize this buildoff, as well as everyone else that participated, it was a great experience.  Hopefully get to do another buildoff like this again soon.
