1979 Team Mongoose

Built this to be my daily rider with some nos parts

Bought the frame and fork off of ebay with the intentions of repainting it but when I got it had a lot of the original paint on it so I built it up as my rider. I sourced the rest of the parts mostly from the museum.  This is a tribute to the Team Mongoose I had stolen from me when I was a kid.
