1979 Team Mongoose

Return of the King!

Some twenty odd years ago a little boy rode a paper route on an old 3spd schwinn with hopes and dreams of a BMX bike. Back in those days a bike was more than a form of transportaion, it helped define you with your friends. "Jimmy? Ya jimmy, the kid with the chrome and red skyway Jimmy!" This was my dream and I worked my ass off to get it. When the day came and  I found the one, it was a blue Team Mongoose with yellow mags, red ano bars and a blue tuf neck. I loved this bike, but not enough to lock it, it got stolen. There were lots of others, but none that came close. Twenty some years later I decided i would have one again! Here it is, all the glory and more cause I put every piece together myself. Hunted down all the right stuff to make this the King of my Rat Goose flock! This gets alot of ride time and locked away in a bullet proof, alarmed goose nest. Took this for a monster long ride and slid by Shad's house for the "Team Shralp" Ramp ride and jam. Got the best pix of this goose in action, the "Joe Dirt" mullet wig, Mongoose team race pants and mega air! This is why I ride and this is what I love. Thanks to all at the BMX Museum who made this Dream a Reality!!!

Re: 1979 Team Mongoose

Still trying to decide. I've got the parts to go either way with it. I might just flip a coin. Either way it's going to be black.

That's a "Carter brothers" mini monster. Has an 8hp briggs with a snowmobile clutch. They kick ass and are tons of fun.
