My first real BMX bike was an '83 Mongoose. Before that, I had a Huffy Thunder Road.

Re: First bmx bike? Pics?

After ten years on a Stingray, I saved my first three paychecks when I was 15 and bought a Team Mongoose. I'm not sure why there is a racing slick on it... lol

Re: First bmx bike? Pics?

If the bike behind #105, the one that looks like a dad is riding, is a Moosegoose, how could it be?  I thought the Moosegoose was a 1980 start up bike, which means it was available in late 1979.  Unless, things were different in Australia, and if this is a Moosegoose!  Either way, very cool!

Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

Re: First bmx bike? Pics?

First bike was a hand me down purple Stingray.   Purple in 79-80 was NOT cool lol  I ditched the banana seat and spray bombed it silver.

Sometime around 1981 my soon to be stepdad took me to a bike shop owned by a former employee of his, the now legendary Freewheeler. 

Gordy hooked me up with a lightly used one exactly like this for $190.  I remember it like it was yesterday

Re: First bmx bike? Pics?

Santa Claus brought me a 1981 Huffy Pro Thunder Xmas of 81...I swapped most parts out except for the frame and fork and ended up with this til Santa brought me a Hutch Pro Raider Xmas of 84. Only thing left of my original Raider is the frame here, with a survivor replacement Raider in the background. As far as the 81 Huffy Pro Thunder, I recently aquired a near mint replacement of my 1st bike.
