1992 Mongoose Menace

Found in the woods!

The story is worth more than the bike here.....I took my dog for a walk and there is an abandoned house way out in the woods- been that way for 20 years- I did a little exploring and there in the weeds I saw the unquestionable shape of a chrome BMX bike with a tree growing through the frame! (still kicking myself for not taking a picture of that sight!) Luckily it was just a Sapling and I pulled the bike out and I saw Mongoose on the frame- was it a 1980"s Supergoose?! A Cali?! No but still a great bike! After a quick serial number check I saw it was a 1992 and said "This is coming home with me!" I had no idea if cracked or what- it was rusty and full of mud and bugs. So there goes a guy walking through the middle of the woods with a rusty bike frame and his dog back to his car!


4 hours later after disassembling everything and cleaning, scraping, re-greasing and removing what was left of stickers I had a frame, bars and forks that were in pretty good shape! Bars have some chrome damage but for sitting for 20 years I am very surprised that the Headset and BB were still functional after servicing! Threw some Mongoose rims and tires on it, brakes and a seat and post and here it is!

Rider quality and coming to the skatepark today to see how it handles

Keep your eyes open.....you never know!
