MONGOOSE MOTOMAG---- Do I part it out? or sell it whole??

I think it would be a crime to part this beautiful survivor out.  The issue is everyone is asking for the different parts and not the whole thing.. 

Whats your thoughts?

Sell it whole and be willing to send it to Australia.  The Aussies LOVE early Mongoose.

There are already 70 thousand survivor Mongooses. Unless you're willing to take less than the sum of the parts, you gotta part it.

I'm not normally a supporter of parting out survivors, but, it's not like someone won't pull another one out next month. And the month after that.


Whenever someone says, "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart," all I hear is, "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart."

Of course us Aussies will pay for shipping. We always have and always will.
It would be a real crime to part that out. If your not in a hurry it will sell. Just have to find the right buyer.
Oh and we have a million Motomag geese down under too. They def aren't rare. Even down here.

I'd say that if you are not hurting for cash, then maybe clean it up and hold on for "your" price.

Otherwise it seems that you're asking "How come a great survivor doesn't pull the big bucks?" and everyone knows that the sum of the parts does not equal the whole (monitarily speaking).

There's also the question as to what your time and trouble is worth (packing, shipping and mutiple tracking concerns); do you feel that the extra bones are worth the work?
I see that all of your bikes are 24" ... so, it's unlikely that you'd enjoy the ride of this particular bike as they are "snug" for even a smaller adult.

Few bikes represent the early BMX better than this one. Ultimately, the bike is yours to do as you please.

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

If it's not going to put you on skid row to sell it now than clean it up and hold onto it...it's only going to gain in value as collectors collect. I personally wouldn't part it unless you are in this for the money and not for the passion.


Old School BMX bike collecting is a hobby and New School Retro BMX bike riding is a hobby. Respect the part of the hobby I enjoy and I'll promise to respect and even compliment the part of the hobby you enjoy. Disrespect what I like and I'll disrespect you...simple enough right?
