1981 Mongoose Kos Kruiser 26

It's only taken me 3years and 5months to get this baby finished!! Alot of hard work chasing down the right parts and alot of fiddling around. I came across this Kos Kruiser while looking through an old rundown hippy shed this Kos was just sitting there rusting away waiting to be rescued.. I couldn't believe my eyes what I was seeing!! I thought I was in a dream! Just had to pinch myself to see it it was real!! Parts breakdown:- Rusty old 26inch BMX cruiser, Shimano Tourney Short arms / Freewheel, Suzie high flange hubs, Tuf-neck seat clamp, Redline 401 Cranks, Sugino spider, SP "K" Kool Chain, Mongoose seat, Nitto seat post, Araya 26inch full alloy chrome wheels... the list goes on!

wow...this is a freakin sweet a$$ ride . i love those dirty old shed finds , nothing beats pulling a classic out of a run down barn and restoring it . almost every bike i have i got this way . just havent been able to run across one of these yet big_smile  .
