NOS IN THE BOX 1983 MONGOOSE PRO CLASS IN SHOW CHROME

Sorry ive take so long to get this posted up dudes its just that ive been very busy latley and i was waiting for the weather to clear up, thanks smilewinkcool

NOS IN THE BOX 1983 MONGOOSE PRO CLASS IN SHOW CHROME!! 8)  8)

So here goes

I recieved a PM on bmxmuseum.com from a USA Member on the 17-4-2012 and it read somthing like this.

"Hi there, i have a Brand New Mongoose Pro Class bike still in the box for sale. If you are interested please send me you email address and ill send you some pics"

Well i was a bit sceptic at first as ive had PM's like this before and it always turns out to be either a 1998 Mongoose Pro or one of the Mongoose 2005 re-issue bikes. Anyways thought nothing to loose and sent him a message back with my email but not expecting anything startling or soon.

The next day i receive an email back from the member with a little description and some photo's. Here is two of them.

Well my jaw hit the floor to say the least  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  lol  lol  lol  HOLY FEC  lol

So i messaged the guy straight back and asked for some more details and of course a price  :?  :?

The story goes that the guy who messaged me was selling it on behalf of another person, an old bike shop owner who was'nt very well and wanted to sell to get some money together to pay for his health care. He owned a Bike shop in America in the 80s and had the bike in storage ever since his shop shut down. Apparently the bike was ordered in for a customer who then came back and said he could'nt go through with the sale. The old guy kept the bike thinking he would sell it to somone else but never did. Once his shop shut down it just got put into storage along with some other stuff and its been sitting there since the 80s  :shock:  :shock:  8)  8)

After some tooing and frowing about the deal regards Price, Posting and payment we finally came to a deal and i recieved the bike 5 days later. The bike was posted via USPS with a value of $40 and as a gift so as not to get any custom charges. Which was a bit risky as if it had gone missing i would'nt have been able to claim the full amount it was worth. So for 5 long days :?  :?  i was checking the tracking over and over untill it arrived safe and sound  lol  lol  lol

As soon as it arrived i took it all out of the box and looked over it for over 2 hours. I could'nt believe i han a NOS IN THE BOX MONGOOSE PRO CLASS IN MY LIVINGROOM  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

I was as happy as a pig in sh1t  lol  lol  8)  8)

So here's some photos ive taken to share with you all. Ive probs taken over 100 detailed photo's here are just a few for everyone to look at, Enjoy  8)  8)  8)  big_smile  big_smile  big_smile
