Re: 1978 Team Mongoose

Need some input from the bmx society. Should I do a restoration on it or put it together and ride it as is. I'm torn.

That's a nice pile of parts. I'd restore it properly. It's too far gone for a survivor IMO.


70's bmx is where it's at.

Re: 1978 Team Mongoose

I think I will do a full resto on it. from what i gather the frame and forks should be done in nickel first then have someone match the candy blue to paint over the nickel?I think there is a small patch of paint left in side the bottom bracket tube.. Does anyone no where i can score a kick ass set of repop stickers..

Re: 1978 Team Mongoose

Why would you order Mongoose decals from anywhere but BMX Products? http://www.bmxproducts.com

That's the expensive way to go about it. A good powdercoater can lay down a silver/chrome type powder base and then do their candy on top of that. Do some research.
