Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

Awesome wedding gift.  Nice build and it reminds me of back in 85 at the bike shop. I dig it.


I don't know what I'd do if anything ever happened to my girlfriend. But first, I'd
probably burn my clothes....
I'm wasting my time trying to come come up with a good quote, so, out of anger, I'm going to waste your time by having you read this one.... Mr T pities the emos, thats why they're sad...

Great gift and great bike! I'm a real sucker for the calis and blue parts. I got a 88 pro with blue parts. Also a GT pro series with some blue parts.

Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

Sweet ride.  I've always liked these.  Only one kid had one in my neighborhood.  All chromed out and shiny. 

I'm sure you didn't do this, but I think it would be hilarious to see all the people dressed up at the wedding reception, gifts in hand, placing them neatly on that gift table----you roll up in your suit and tie with the bike, lean it up against the table with a bow on it next to all the other gifts.  His new wife would be like "WTF????"  lollollol

Re: 1985 Mongoose Californian

Great Story! Building one almost identical myself as we speak. There's just something about these Cali's. I call it the "It" factor. LOL! You have to get some pictures of the look on his face when he gets it.
