1975 Mongoose Motomag

ONE OF THE EARLIEST KNOWN ; THE HOLY GRAIL OF MONGOOSE

PICKED THIS FRAME,BARS,CRANKS AND ORIGINAL SEMI VALLY MOTOMAG Is FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER. CANT BELIEVE THE MAGS WERE NOT CRACKED. WAS SPRAY BOMBED A CREME COLOR BUT I FOUND THE OG ORANGE PAINT ON THE INSIDE OF THE BB. AFTER BLASTING , RED-D BIKES OF SAN ANTONIO REPAINTED IT THE OG ORANGE. MAGS HAD TO BE BLASTED AS THEY WER PAINTED ASWELL THEN I HAD TO STEEL WOOL THEM TO GET A OG LOOK BACK TO THEM. REPLACED THE BB TO TANG SEKI AND HEADSET TO TANG MOTOCROSS AS PER SPECS AS MONGOOSE WAS NOT USING STAMPED MONGOOSE PARTS AT THE TIME YET. CORRECT MESSINGER SEAT, OG POST AND UNSTAMPED CLAMP. OG BARS WITH VINTAGE CLEAR 7/8 STAMPED GRIPS, NOT SURE OF MAKE. UP GRADED FORKS FROM UNSTAMPED ASHTABULLA TO STAMPED ASHTABULLA ,ASWELL AS THE STEM. THE WELDER ACTUALLY MISSED A WELD ON THE REAR GUSSET FRAME STAY,NICE. THIS IS ONE OF THE EARLIEST MOTOMAGS IVE SEEN LISTED, PROBALLY MADE WITHEN THE FIRST MONTHS OF PRODUCTION. THIS GONNA BE A WALL HANGER FOR SURE.
