Re: HElp ID these Rarr Mongoose

I don't know anything about Mongoose serials, but those look like 1980 models to me.


If it has tits or tires, it's gonna give you problems.

Re: HElp ID these Rarr Mongoose

I think the blue is 1980 and the red and 81 maybe?

Re: HElp ID these Rarr Mongoose

Geeze.. I do know what they are Kindof.  just trying to find out Exactly what they are.  Nothing else.  I put this up in the name it forum.  I had a 81 red Team bike when I was a kid and would like to get another one to look at.  I seen these and figured I would ask here because usually peps here are friendly and fast reporters.  And I just want some info on my cruiser. No big:rolleyes:

Re: HElp ID these Rarr Mongoose

They are both 1981`s and neither are cruisers.


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

Great! Can you tell me how you determine this exactly?  And I was referring to my  Expert Pro 24" cruiser frame # HFFH02320

Thank You!

Re: HElp ID these Rarr Mongoose

Why does the blue bike have all the extra numbers?  I thought the "M" was Taiwan made?  But they didn't make them over there in 81 did they? And the bottom brace was never made over there either.
