I want a New KOS ! Where do I get one?

Probably a stupid question but where do I get a New KOS?  I went to Mongoose website and they show a black and a white Sig series but no chrome.   I have always wanted a kos but have never found one I  could afford.  I could justify it for a new ready to ride bike tho.

thanks

It looks like maybe they were not released in the USA? There's one raw one for sale locally here on CL.

I think theyre available here in Aus.
Probably not impossible.
Just pricey.
The white is sick tho.

Re: I want a New KOS ! Where do I get one?

Yeah f*ck Pacific Cycles, they are cashing in on  the vintage scene.  Yet they won't release it in the US because they don't sell as well.  Pure greed, they don't give a rip about the heritage of Mongoose. Otherwise they would realize it all started right here in the US.  All they care about is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

It would look sweet if you stripped it down and built it back up with older parts.

I have had one. Good bike I just like the retro styling of the Kos.  I'm gonna find someone to get me a white sig!

Re: I want a New KOS ! Where do I get one?

Just not a fan of the "Raw"   But I am all about factory finishes so yeah, Painting it isn't an option. I'm just picky that way.

Re: I want a New KOS ! Where do I get one?

At the cost of the bike and the parts you want to swap on it (if youre me, theres several) you might be better off with an OG.

I like the white one but most new bikes like this leave me with buyers remorse.

Re: I want a New KOS ! Where do I get one?

See you guys have it over us in the US.  At least you can go to the dealer and put it in your hands. That makes the decision to pay the premium or not much easier

Pm sent. Remember: The limited run bikes in 2012 in the US had 3 piece cranks.  The ones across the pond appear to have a low cost 1 piece.
