1983 Mongoose Minigoose

My 50th build...

This was to cool to pass up. Found a brand new pair of Skyways and nos tires. A chip off the old block...

The '83 Minigoose had 20" tires.  Do your research before you start calling people out for misinformation.

Mitygoose: 16" wheel, x-small frame
Minigoose: 20" wheel, small frame
Motomag/Expert/Calif. Special/Supergoose: 20" wheel, normal frame
Moosegoose: 20" wheel, large frame
KOS Cruiser: 24" wheel, large frame


I don't build carpet queens, and I could care less about NOS.

My bikes have personality and character - marks and memories from lives of abuse and neglect.

Good detective work there, Sherlock. Did you bother to look at the pictures? You know, the one of the seat tube with the Minigoose decal? Or how about the one of the whole bike that clearly shows that it's a 20" f/f with 16" wheels. I didn't think so. Maybe you should take your own advice. roll

Well you didn't quote properly so it was impossible to tell who you were talking to.

I believe you, me and tuffguy are all saying the same thing.
