1998 Mongoose Villain

Rest In Peace Mike. You will be missed.

This bike belonged to a good friend of mine that I have known for years (since second grade really), that went missing on Christmas Eve, 2011. In December of 2013, his remains were found. He gave me the bike shortly before he vanished. The only things I have done to it is replace the grips, tires, and rear axle (one side was stripped out so it wouldn't tighten down). Everything else has been left alone. What you see, is what he rode (Negative the parts I mentioned). 

Mike, you were like a brother to me. Many times, you called me at 10 PM at night, wanting to go ride, and we did. We'd meet up at the 4 way above my house, or down by your house, and not come back home until early in the AM, just before dawn. Those were the days. Not a care in the world. What I wouldn't give to have you back by my side again. I love you Mike. My Brother. My Friend. You will be missed, and never forgotten.
