I think it's a Mongoose. Don't know what model though. Late 80's or early 90's.

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Looks like it may be a 1988 Supergoose - only difference I see is the dropouts don't have the three holes (from these photos anyway).  Any Supergoose experts confirm or deny?

Nice call on the Mongoose & year range BTW.

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Checked museum for similiar frames. Was thinking 92 Solutionbecause there aren't holes in the rear drops. But the chain/seat stays seem thicker on yours than others and yours doesn't appear to have a brace behind the bottom bracket where the others do.I think Tim Hall was racing for Goose at this time and because he was a dirt jumper/racer he may have had a model made for him that's not listed in the museum... Need some real goose experts to chime in.
Oh, got your bars shipped Saturday morning, will PM you with tracking number Sunday morning.

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Awesome, thanks.  I'll get a closer look at the frame and post some more pics when I get it in hand - bought it on a whim today.  Looks like my son is going to have a full chrome ride pretty soon here instead of a rebuilt 78 red Goose (guess who gets to polish it all, at least the first time).

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Don't have the frame in person yet or I'd post the SN - just saw a guide to the SN's in a different post - will post when I get it.  I think RidingAgain may have nailed it with the 92 Solution Pro call, though, after looking at a few more images.

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Look at the additional images in this post - the missing brace behind the BB.  And the stays seem to be same diameter as mine. Guess I'll lock it down once I get t here.

Re: Can anybody ID this F&F?

Got the frame finally.  SN is HBBGO2874.  Can't find any guidance on this SN on vintagemongoose or anywhere and I don't have time to go through the whole museum.  Any suggestions?
