Re: 1980 Team Mongoose

Nice!
It might look better with a set of black vinyl pads than the red.

I went back and forth between blue and black on mine too, so I know it's a tough call..

thanks mate. mine's a 1978 and it was powdered straight over the nickle, but a shade darker than the standard blue. i really should have nickle forks with a decoster decal to make it a bit more proper.
thanks for the info on the seat, much appreciated.

your team is superb, ol' mate, and a great inspiration to try and get mine as close to catalogue correct as i can.

Re: 1980 Team Mongoose

This bike is awesome. Since the Team was my second bike when I was a kid, I'm considering building one of these when I'm done with my current projects.


Looking for:
+ KKT KMX Rat Trap Pedals - Silver 9/16
+ Dia-Compe right side Bronco Bend lever - silver
+ Mitsuboshi Comp IIs - Black: 2.125 and 1.75
+ DB Turbo Suede Seat
+ Oakley F-1s - Black/Grey

Re: 1980 Team Mongoose

Hola! I'm a Kiwi from New Zealand. My brother received a U.S.A. imported red Team Mongoose with black suede seat in 1980 and the frame and rimms are in mint condition. Can someone please tell me the original parts - crank, breaks, grips, tyres and seat for this bike as I want to restore it with him? Also, being from New Zealand would it be easy to buy these parts? Hope someone can help. Cheers!
