An exceptional bike if that's the original paint & stickers.

Again with the questions, always questions.

Is this a 'production' model or a frameset that was built up by bike shop or original owner. [or recent rebuild on a great original frame?]
The bars look like the original ALPS 56-1's & the seat looks like an original Quickie one. Don't know about the Addicks clamp though.
Are they the original wheels?
[Mongoose didn't catalogue them on production bikes till 1981, but I know they had been available for years]
Do you have a picture of the stickers on the seat tube?

I'll keep building bikes till I die, & maybe a couple of days after that. Quicksilver
It's Aussie for "BMX"
