Glenn sounds like an August 1981 Supergoose to me. Great find!

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Thanks for the bit of info.  However the rear dropouts are not looped, but butt end welded.  Was this construction continued that late?  I'll try and post some pics later.

What are we looking at here gents?  Supposedly a 82 (or 83) Mongoose Pro Class serial number J200 7267 .

Does that look right to you blokes?   I've always wanted a goose & this one could be in the right price range.
cheers

Apparently there is a crossover period where they both shared some time together at the plant. It wasn`t that they made the motomag style frames so late it`s more like the looptails started a little early.

You`re 99 44/100ths correct. The "T" is for Team or Supergoose. Teams were powdered in red or blue over nickel. Supers were chrome. Now, there is some who say that some Supers were nickel up to a certain year then chrome or something like that. I`m too sure on all that but I do know that at some point the info I gave is right lol.

It looks to have been red at one time. There is a small amount of overspray in the gusset. Thanks for the info.

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Dont know if anyone has come across this cause ive only read 2 pages of these posts  which have been up for a long while

Here is something i cant explain only found this cause i have 2 mongoose Cali's 84 and a 85  in 85 the top tube is 1/2 inch longer then the 84   the 84 is 18 1/2

                                 the 85 is 19" flat  so why they started to build them 1/2 longer is one more mongoose mystery !!

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

Hey, new to the site and rebuilding bikes.  I always wanted a Mongoose when I was a kid...parents would never cough up the $.  So, at 35, I finally am realizing the dream.  I got this frame Serial # is H149225, off where else...E-Bay!  The sticker in the post tube says Expert and 1984 and it has the gusset on the frame as well.  I have found no 1984 on this site that look like mine, and have the gusset. Help.  Thank you!  Oh, Yeah, what does Expert mean?http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x271/typd1613/Serial.jpghttp://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x271/typd1613/FullFrame.jpg

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

that would be a november 1981 goose, not an expert. that sticker belongs on the later looptail (no gusset) frame.


when i see a mongoose at walmart, i try and picture the metal being used to make something more useful, like a frying pan, or maybe some clothes hangers...oh well...its out of my hands.

my bikes are tri-moly. that means i have 3 times more chromo than you..haha

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

at first ('80) the Team & Supers were the same (nickle) with different components. when they moved overseas ('81) the Team was dropped and the Super got chromed. check out pg 3 & 4.

Re: Mongoose Serial Number Info

I have a bike that looks like a mongoose but has a brake bridge aswell as an extra gusset from the seat post tube and the bottom tube, It is weird and am not sure what it is, I know the old gooses had the extra gusset but had coaster brakes, then they had the brake bridge and not the extra gusset,my problem is that I have both.I have serial numbers in 3 positions, one on the right drop out is 651320, one on the left drop out is TH8303 and one on the bottom bracket 1132.Does any one know what bike I have?
