1988 Mongoose Mini Californian

My 6 yr old Daughters Daily Ride...

This bike was my first foray back into the world of BMX...When i found this bike it was 'hand' painted red...
My 6yr old  daughter chose the Gold powder with Pearl coat and the old school decals..........
I KNOW THIS IS NOT ORIGINAL, but its not my bike...........even though i kinda like it........
anyway,

Mini Californian F/F
GT Stem & Seat
Ame Grips
Diacompe 901 Brake & Lever
Sun Rims w/ Intense Rubber 20x1.1/8
Sugino 42T
Diamond Back Pedals
Race Bars

The best 'part' on this bike............................................my daughter and her grin..you know the one, i had it back in the day...the grin when got your
first real COOL bike.............
THANKS FOR LOOKING..

Re: 1988 Mongoose Mini Californian

Very nice result. I've just scored a mini-Cal and yours has inspired me to go with a colour or chrome and some type of earlier decals. The standard grey colour doesn't do this classic F/F design any favours.
