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!!

Wow, what the hell did you hang the derailleur on in the 'before' shot? 

Is that rigged as a "69'er"?  8D

Re: 1981 Mongoose Kos Kruiser

Hi,
New to the kos Kruiser scene, I just picked up a Kos a week ago. (wanted one as a kid)! It is all original down to the dry rotted tires. Stainless bars, seatpost, mongoose seatclamp,(with mongooss refector bracket and refector), mongoose suade seat, (terrible condition), Double clamp stem, Mongoose cranks, BB, Headset, fork, faded red ARAYA rims. I cleaned it up. rebuilt the wheels with some gold sushine sealed bearing hubs I had laying arround, and added repro stickers. It looks snd rides killer!
     After looking at other kos kruisers on this site I noticed that most frames don't have a hole in the chain stay (box) near the bottom bracket. Mine does. Anybody out there know geneology of this frame? what year? serial # coding?

Thanks,

Mizzaxx

Sounds like you may have a mongoose Two-Six which was a restickered Kos after Jeff Kosmala left mongoose. There were a lot that were decaled as a KOS due to Mongoose having numerous KOS decals left over.

I have a two four also. Just the frame and fork.  Someday I will set it up. Kos, Two Four, Pro Class 24, and a Moosegoose in my stable.
