Re: 1978 Mongoose Motomag

That's cool to have old pics like that.
Nice goose.
Do you still have it?


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"

Re: 1978 Mongoose Motomag

Nice to have some old pics from back then... That bike looks great! smile

I have similar pics from when I was 12 years old and yours remind me of just how much I loved my first Mongoose back then and why I still love them today! Very cool...


A "Squonk" is like a Mongoose only much harder to find...

Re: 1978 Mongoose Motomag

I do still have the bike, however I painted it black about 15 years ago.  Wish I would have kept it red, so might be changing it back this winter.  I will have to take a current pic of the bike and add it to this post.
