My Cru Jones Version

Here is my 1983 Mongoose Expert. I decided to turn it into a Cru Jones build. I acquired this bike from a friend who had it stored in his shed. A little bit of polishing and the chrome looked new again. My 18 year old son [who used to race BMX] has watched our copy of RAD more times that I can count and considers it his favorite movie. He was the driving force to build this. I'm so happy to see that even the young guns love our inspirational movie!! I purchased several of the parts to finish this here on the museum. Although not 100% correct, I'm proud of it. The elusive blue BMX seat is still escaping me! I would love to get out West one day or to the next RAD reunion and have some stars sign it. In the last pic, you will see Cru and Christian's uniforms. My son's girlfriend made these and they wore them to the 11th Annual Midwest Old School Show at Joliet in 2011. Thanks for looking!
